Enjoying the moment.

I'm impatient.

It is a fact I have lived with my entire life. I have never been so self-fooled as to claim any sort of sufferance.


I am always getting frustrated and caught up in what I don't have now:
my degree, a baby, a little house of my own, financial stability, heck; a job right now.

 as opposed to appreciating that which I do have:
The most attentive husband I could ever ask for, a loving family, a warm place to live, food to eat.


As I was nearing the halfway mark of my run tonight, Claire de Lune began playing on my ipod and an especially cool breeze greeted me from across a grassy field.

It was perfect.


In that moment, my breathing came easy and my uphill pace felt like a soaring accomplishment. I was exactly where I wanted to be and it was amazing.

Here's to holding on to the fleeting moments of peace and perfection to help us through the rest.

  1. Except for the running part ( ;-) ), I could have written this post. I struggle so much with the balance between what I want and what I have. I have to continually remind myself to slow down, appreciate, enjoy. It's probably why I write about it so much on my blog! Patience is NOT a natural attribute of mine...

    This is a lovely post. :)
