Moving Fast....

I feel like 2010 has already passed by in a blur. The days are moving by so quickly and I don't feel like I've cherished one moment so far.

I feel like my days are like a record stuck on repeat....go to work, make dinner, workout/clean, go to bed. I realized today that it's been weeks since I've had a "real" conversation with my fiance. Of course we talk every day, but it's either me complaining about my job, discussing what's for dinner, then complaining how tired I am and how little I've accomplished on my to-do list. I don't have a clue what he's been up to lately. I almost feel like when we are together I'm just too tired to even strike up a conversation.

I need to slow down and "smell the roses" once in a while. I need to reflect on the "important" things in life and make sure I'm taking the time to enjoy each of those moments. I've always believed in the idea that FAMILY COMES FIRST but lately I've been putting my job and my stresses in front of everything else.

This means I need to stop stressing out, over thinking, or complaining and put my troubles in perspective and try to enjoy the short time I have here with my loved ones. I need to savor and appreciate each moment because you can't go back. I need to appreciate life and cherish each moment instead of rushing from Point A to Point B.

I need to learn to do this quickly as I can only imagine how hectic and crazy life will become once the wedding date approaches.

It is hard not to get caught up in the daily grind of life. Perhaps you can try and set aside the first 15-20 minutes after work to just talk with your finance -- I also recommend at least 1 "date night" a week -- a designated time to just hang out and do something fun together.
