I hate when I have a thought, a good one I might add, but before I can get the thought out…it’s gone. That irks m to the core, I am just moving around and before I know it I get an aha moment but as fast as lightening can strike I may forget it. I’ve gotten to the poin to where I have to write things down because I will have so much on my mind that I cannot keep my thoughts straight. All I know is that I am too young for this to be happening so soon. My mom calls it having a “senior moment” but when I hear that I don’t want any part of the word or that forgetfulness that accompanies it. I may have to go around carrying a notepad with me so that when I have a thought I am able to write it down. Oh my, what is a girl (me) to do???
Often times we get so caught up in wanting to be with someone that we tend to forget about ourselves. We get so wrapped up in the idealizations of what we want that we lose focus on what is currently standing in front of us. I’ve been there and have done that, in fact I’m doing it now…and it sucks. It sucks because I let the most important thing slip away from my focus: the value of me. Me, ME, ME, ME, ME!!! It happens and I know that we are all guilty of doing this, we get so caught up in what we want or the other person that we forget about ourselves and how important we are. We lose focus of what matters, and in this crazy and hectic world we forget to focus on us. Me being the selfish person that I am, saw what I wanted and let my mind run wild, and for the last two years, on and off, have been forgetting to value myself more in the situation than what I do. I matter, You matter, and the quicker we all realize it and start to value us more in our own lives I believe that things will turn out better. There is value in each and every one of us; but it is up to us remember it, to realize it, and to make us and our lives that more valuable with the choices that we make and then I believe that life will be more enjoyable and less stressful.
