This is one of my all time favorite quotes (I even names my Tumblr blog after it). I love it because first of all it uses the word darling and I’m a huge fan of that word. Secondly, I love how it comes from a very unlikely place, The Incredibles. Of course I also like the meaning of the quote. How by looking back into the past we aren’t fully present in the current moment. It’s really easy when there are big changes in your life to look back at how things used to be and how they seemed so much better, but memories have a funny way of changing exactly how something was. So I try to make it my goal (while it is sometimes hard), to live fully in the moment and not let my past distract me.
I’m usually been pretty good about posting Sunday Inspiration ever week, but for the past few weeks I’ve been slacking. I came across this quote though and decided it would be the perfect one to bring back Sunday Inspiration. I really liked it because I’m working on not overthinking things. Too often I worry about what people will think if I do something or I worry about all of the possible bad outcomes from doing something. I’ve wasted too many opportunities and my biggest goal for my study abroad semester is to seize all of the opportunities.
This weekend I caught a cold and I felt horrible from it and all I really wanted to do was sleep and watch Netflix. I ended up making the poor decision of watching the pilot from Lost and 2 days later I am almost done with season 1. I’m completely hooked. As I was thinking about what to write about for this Sunday Inspiration though, I was thinking about the amount of time I was wasted this weekend watching Lost. While I wasn’t feeling and proabably wouldn’t have been able to accomplish much, in general I waste a lot of my time watching Netflix instead of going out and making memories. I feel like I’m always telling myself that tomorrow I’ll start living the life I want for myself, yet tomorrow is today and I’m still not doing half the things that I would like to be. It’s so easy to just push play and watch one more episode of Lost, but the hard things in life are the things that matter. So today I am deciding to start living the life I dream about living and I hope you do too.
