"Just because you have a big future doesn't mean you shouldn't take ownership of your present"-@lylebphillips
Nick and I are both dreamers. We are both really good at knowing what we want and chasing after it. I think it's one of our strongest attributes as a couple. One thing that we both struggle with is learning how to enjoy and take ownership of the present. Nick is honestly much better at it than I am. For me it often looks like owning my heart in the present moment. Sometimes there are days that go by until I stop and realize "how's my heart". It's easy for me to stay busy and have a huge list of things to do and accomplish them all. I'm REALLY good at that. What I am learning to be good at is stopping to take note of how I am ACTUALLY doing and owning my "present". It's still a process that I am practicing, but I am so thankful for my husband, family, and best friends who pause to truly know how my heart is doing.
