Good Bye August - Hello September
I can't believe August is over already! Where has 2019 gone? As a kid the in my life always told me enjoy this time while you're young because once you get older time flies. I never understood what they meant when I was younger now that I'm in my early 30's it's amazing how fast time flies. During this conversation with myself I usually look back and say what have I accomplished in the last 10 years? Holy cow I've been out of high school for 15 years, really showing my age now. What have I accomplished since I've graduated high school?
It's funny when you're a kid you measure the year, by when the school year starts and stops. As an adult being out of school, you typically don't associate any part of your year with the school calendar. There are few of us where our livelihoods intertwine with the school calendar still. The examples I'm thinking of are mainly teachers or anybody associated with the education profession. In my life, being a police officer (among other things), I direct traffic during the school bus route in the mornings. So in that small way I still associate my life with the school year, like when I was a kid. The same could be said for anybody that has kids.
Summer always seems like the best part of the year as a kid though, because you usually got to do fun things. As an adult you have so much more responsibility and life seems so carefree when you were a kid. I affectionately call this adulting. But there is still some part of me that measures summer by the fun that we get to have. I like to try to do one big thing / summer every other year, with my husband like scuba diving out of the country.
When I look back at my accomplishments and achievements, I'm not dissatisfied. There are a lot of factors you have to take into account when you look at how far you've come in your life. So with the cards I've been dealt I feel like I've done pretty good so far. Of course there's always room for Improvement. That's something I work on everyday, for the most part I'm generally happy with where I am in my life at this time. Which is more than I can say for most people.
I digress, August is over Already! Holy moly! Another summer in the books.
Still so many places to go, people to see, and things to do this year
