Enjoy the Sun.

My favorite Dr. Seuss quote says, “How did it get so late so soon? It’s night before it’s afternoon. December is here before it’s June. My goodness how the time has flewn. How did it get so late so soon?”

I’m sitting in my apartment and realizing for the first time how “me” it is.  I don’t think I ever expected this little apartment to become my home. I think that’s why it surprised so much to look up from my journal and see little pieces of my personality decorating my own apartment. I’m glad life is life that. It tends to slap you in the face about a year or so later on and make you realize how far you have come and remind you of you who you have become.

I love the quote because it reminds me of how quickly life moves and how it rarely lets you know where it’s going. It reminds me of being young and playing as long as I could with my best friend before the sun was gone and I had to go inside. It makes me think about things. It makes me remember that feeling I felt as I was packing for college. It reminds me moving away from the campus to my little apartment. It makes me think of my best friends getting married and having babies. It makes me think about the people I care about and makes me wonder how much love I will still have to give later on in my life. It makes me love the moment I’m in.

Time goes by quickly and I’m assuming it won’t ever stop. Don’t wait till things are perfect to appreciate them. Don’t wait till you have the perfect job to spend time with your family. Don’t wait till you live in your perfect place to love who you are. Don’t waste what you have before its gone. Enjoy the sun before it’s too dark and time to go inside. Take every moment and opportunity given to you. Before you know it you’ll be asking, “How did it get so late so soon?”
