"People overestimate what they can do in a single day and underestimate what they can do in their whole lives"I'm the kind of person that feels like there isn't enough time in a day. Ever. As I sit here drinking my Iced Pumpkin Spice Latte (HOORAY!), it's so crazy to think that this dreaded 90 degree weather will be gone before we know it. It feels like summer just flew by... Like I haven't done anything.
Do you ever feel like you have to list everything you've done just so that you appreciate it? So that you can realize how lucky you really are to have done so much?? I feel like sometimes I forget how lucky I am or how grateful I should feel.
A short recap of my summer: Went to a wedding in Indiana; went to the beach and ate my favorite burger in New Buffalo, Michigan; celebrated the 4th of July in Milwaukee; enjoyed friends and craft beer at a couple local street festivals; flew to NYC for children's wear trade shows; moved in with my fiance; was thrown a fantastic bridal shower; had a fun day at the race track; worked my @$$ off on a daily basis between lollie, Maven Collection, Halfstack Magazine, and Shop North Shore..... Looks like I've done much more than I originally thought.
Fall is just around the corner, and I can only expect that it will be even crazier. After all, I am getting married in just over a month. Then, I'll be on the beaches of Cabo San Lucas just two days later. I'll find out where my fiance's company will be headquartered within weeks of that. Soon enough, it'll be Thanksgiving, then Christmastime, and then I'll really wonder where the year went! And if there's anything I learned this year, it'll be that you can't plan life.
Knowing this, the quote above is truer than not. We really do underestimate what we can do in our whole lives. So much can happen in a month, let alone a year, or 100 years. Coming from the girl that always had her life planned to a T, I really have to ask, where's the fun in planning everything?
Life is worth so much more than a daily planner.
