There's an event tonight that I really want to attend, so why do I keep convincing myself that I shouldn't go?
As I sit here waiting to start to my shift for work, I already know the excuses I will come up with on my way home tonight.
"You've been on your feet all day."
"You should probably rest those pregnant swollen feet of yours."
"Listen to everyone and take it easy these last few weeks."
"Kevin probably had a long day at work too and it's best to just go home and be there for him and Aubrey."
But not today!
Sure, wearing pajamas snuggled up on the couch (probably eating ice cream) sounds really nice, but so does meeting other passionate people and celebrating someone else's success.
So why do we do this? Why do we convince ourselves to not join in on the party and be alone at times?
I believe it's because we think those events and memories are replicable and happen more often than not. Well, that's just not true. You'll never be able to relive or recreate the same event twice.
Without sharing too much, my mother-in-law was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer in January and it has really placed things into perspective for me.
I encourage you to enjoy every moment with your children that you can. Love on your significant other as much as possible. And if you're sitting somewhere reading this and contemplating if you should go out, go! Life is a party, join in when you can!
