Just a Moment...

100 years, by Five for Fighting, is one of my favorite songs because it reminds me that everyday is new and I should be content to live my life to the fullest right now.

That has been something I have been struggling with.  I am a self professed OCD dreamer.  I have all my hopes and plans for the future I sometimes forget to make the most of the present. 

 I am nineteen for this moment. 
I feel too young to be an adult, yet I feel the pressures of having to figure out my life right now. I want an older, more figured out moment.

  

What are you for this moment?


"I'm fifteen for a moment
Caught in between ten and twenty
And I'm just dreaming
Counting the ways to where you are

I'm twenty-two for a moment
And she feels better than ever
And we're on fire
Making our way back from Mars
Fifteen.... There's still time for you
Time to buy and time to lose
Fifteen.... There's never a wish better than this
When you only got a hundred years to live

I'm thirty-three for a moment
Still the man, but you see
A kid on the way, babe
A family on my mind

I'm forty-five for a moment
The sea is high
And I'm heading into a crisis
Chasing the years of my life

Fifteen.... There's still time for you
Time to buy and time to lose yourself
Within a morning star

Fifteen.... I'm all right with you
Fifteen.... There's never a wish better than this
When you only got a hundred years to live

Half time goes by
Suddenly you're wise
Another blink of an eye
Sixty-seven is gone
The sun is getting high
We're moving on...

I'm ninety-nine for a moment
And time for just another moment
And I'm just dreaming
Counting the ways to where you are

Fifteen.... There's still time for you
Twenty-two.... I feel her too
Thirty-three.... You're on your way
Every day's a new day

Fifteen.... There's still time for you
Time to buy and time to choose, hey
Fifteen.... There's never a wish better than this
When you only got a hundred years to live"

No matter the moment... One thing still holds true...
Isaiah 46:3b-4a
"I have created you and cared for you since you were born. I will be your God through all your lifetime, Yes, even when your hair is white with age. I made you and I will care for you."
Comforting isn't it?  <3
