There is something so incredibly freeing about driving down an almost empty freeway while the sun sets on a beautiful day. I love to drive the Mustang on days like today with the windows down and the music waaay up...I don't even care how loud it gets...it just feels good. I will *always* be a Texas girl - I love it in every single way. It is just "me" if that makes any sense at all.
It is so easy to get caught up in life and to convince yourself that some things are SO important when they really aren't. I am tired of justifying things and I am ready to say out loud that it is OK to hate work sometimes, and to be overly tired sometimes, and to be so sick of everyday things sometimes...but not all the time, not even most of the time.
How quickly life goes by, almost in an instant it seems. How the heck did I get to be 25 years old and when did I forget to appreciate the little things in life? All of us can count a million reasons why we are incredibly blessed - when will we focus on those things?
I love the new Taylor Swift song Fifteen. The lyrics are so powerful if you really think about it. On the surface they refer to a first love but that's not the thing I like about this song. I like that when you strip it down it is really about how you think you know it all when you are young and you make mistakes because in reality, you don't. I look back on those days and I am OK with all the mistakes I made - I wouldn't take ONE THING back. It made me, me...
"Cause when you're fifteen and somebody tells you they love you, your gonna believe them, and when you're fifteen feeling like there's nothing to figure out, well count to ten, take it in, this is life before you know who your gonna be."
Have an incredible night and do something fun - live it up!!!! Be free!
