with this 7-year-old hunk of cuteness:
Me: Shay, if you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Him: To catch lizards.
Me: In another country?
Me: Which one?
Him: This one! Across the street!
Him: Across the street is my world.
Me: You're living your dream, buddy.
Remember when we were kids and nothing was better than the moment we were actually living? No constant planning and worrying about the future and no thinking about the past--just loving our world at the present...loving the idea of catching lizards across the street more than any other possibility.
I aim to do better at losing myself in my present world. In fact, it's become necessary in a lot of ways. So as you read this I'm riding Space Mountain 7 times in a row and I'm not worrying about whatever is on my plate when I return home. I'm just taking a ride in a spaceship with my friend.
And it's awesome.
I hope you love your world today!
