Sorry to the reference to ASOFAI 😉 It just seemed fitting for this post. Sometimes I can’t believe how quickly life goes by. I remember when I was younger feeling that 15 minutes seemed to last forever. Now, 15 minutes is nothing to me. Each week seems to go faster and faster and the years are flying by. I just want time to slow down.
For those of you who don’t know, I am 24 years old and will be 25 in March. I don’t know why, but I’m still in this mindset that I’m somehow dependent upon my parents, but I’m not at all. I am completely independent of them, except for being on my dad’s insurance still. When I look around my house and see all the things I have and that I’ve acquired over my adult life thus far, I’m pretty amazed. I actually do live on my own! I take care of my own house, I take care of my car, I take care of boyfriend (sort of), and I take care of a cat. Wow, look at me, I’ve grown up!
But why do I still feel this way?! It’s the weirdest feeling.
With the winter coming up and cold and flu season just around the corner, I’m going to try to look at winter as being a lovely time. Hopefully, we don’t have a record cold winter like last year, or else it might be very difficult to appreciate this time.
I hate the cold seasons because with them comes illness. I shouldn’t fear them so much! It’s just stuck in my mind that cold = illness and it terrifies me. I need to get out of this mindset because it nearly kills me living in fear every winter. Probably I said this last year, but I’m saying it again. Hopefully this year it sticks!
Well, hope your weekend is going well. It’s beautiful outside today! Chester is enjoying having the windows open 🙂
