I remember so much of my childhood. And when I think back, it seems like every memory came along with someone telling me to slow down, and enjoy these moments. But I was way too young and immature to accept what Ferris Bueller was trying to tell me. “Life moves pretty fast, and if you don’t slow down and look around once and a while, could miss it.”
Now, I’m not saying everyday is a monumental event and you should do your best to remember it. But the moments you love that happen every weekend with your friends? Yeah, you should try your best to slow those down. Take a picture. Enjoy it. My girlfriend taught me something important a long time ago, (and some how we’re already coming up on two years together), memories are the only thing you’re left with. All the money in the world can’t buy you memories.
So slow things down. Enjoy the moment. If your friends and roommates want to go out on a Tuesday night, go. Or if your girlfriend wants to stay in, stay in. But whatever you do, make it enjoyable. Make it memorable. The last thing you want when it’s all said and done, is to question whether or not it was worth it.
