You're just like a dream: An Update

After meeting with my academic advisor this afternoon I've decided to just breathe deeply and appreciate the moment.  I don't do this often enough, and I realize that I've been looking at the bigger picture of my life far too often lately.  It's taken over all my thoughts, so that I can't even do a simple task (like homework) without getting sidetracked into some Google search of things to do with my life.  I haven't been thinking straight for quite some time--or maybe I've been thinking too straight.  Maybe I've been so geared towards the future that I've lost sight of the present.

So, I thought I'd take a moment to breathe deeply and appreciate this moment.  In the photo, I am jumping, reaching towards the sky.  My friend captured this moment--one moment in the infinite motions of my life. It's reminding me right now that it was one second, a split second I was off the ground, in the air, flying, floating.  My feet appreciated this moment.
What I'm trying to say here is that I need to stop being so obsessed with looking forward and planning out my life, that it will fall into place not by following a guideline, but by simply living in the moment.

Sigh. It's a lot easier said than done.


  1. In that moment you took a leap, you didn't play is safe and plan. You took a bold action to fulfill your hearts desire. Between all the seriousness remember to also have a bit of fun.

    Thats Life.
