    I absolutely love this! It's so each to get caught up in wishing a season or a day could pass and not appreciate life fully.

    Love this. Definitely hit home for me as my life's on hold due to recovering from a hip surgery. The days are long but my surgery was 2 months ago now and I'm about two months from returning to work, normal life… <3

    So true. I remember those months leading up to Match Day where time felt like it was creeping by. Now I can't believe we have been in Chicago for three months!

    This really touched my heart today. I just turned 25 this month, which has me thinking about how I've spent my life. I know spending your life well is part time management, part stress management, and part "making good choices." It's easier said than done, but it's so important. Thanks for this beautiful reminder!

    This lesson has been really major for my husband and I. I so badly want this season of infertility to be over but at the same time I don't want to look back on my 20s and feel regret we didn't enjoy it more. It's a daily choice for sure.

    Love this post! I try and practice this as much as I can, but the planner in me has a hard time with it. Plus with my husband deploying, I always find myself either looking forward to his coming home or dreading the next time he leaves. I may just print out your image and pin it up in my office as a reminder!

    Such a cool way to look at things… I'd honestly never thought of it like this before. This is just what I needed right now! šŸ™‚

    When thinking of what I want to do with my life, I feel like all the socially accepted plausible options are just ways for me to waste time away. All this time spent studying could be spent on something else. Or maybe this is all I know, and having this purpose really is the best way to spend my time.

    I absolutely love this post! I like the way you think about "spending your life." I think that's such an interesting way to think about time, how we choose to spend it, and what we really want out of life. Tonight I'm going to go out with husband out for dinner, just because!

    Every day I work I BEG in my head for it to be over. I literally waste 5 days wishing it was my days off. And then my days off go so fast. I have to quit wasting my days, even if I am at work.
