Nothing Will Be the Same

I’m a sucker for a good quote.๐Ÿ˜ I search for them when I’m reading. Products with quotes always catch my eye. There are many ๐Ÿ‘š shirts in my closet and โ˜•๏ธ mugs in my cupboard with words on them. But I saw a quote the other day that stuck with me.

“Look around you. Appreciate what you have. Nothing will be the same in a year.”

I’m a believer in the whole notion of appreciating what you have.๐Ÿฅฐ But the part that really got to me was the last line. Nothing will be the same in a year.


That seems ๐Ÿ‘ฝ ominous and ๐Ÿฅณ hopeful at the same time, doesn’t it? It’s also true. Nothing will be the same in a year. For better or worse, things change. That’s one thing we can count on.

Looking back on my own life, I couldn’t have guessed what life would be like right now.๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ I had plans and ideas, just like everyone else. Some of those intentions happened just as I imagined. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป Others weren’t even on my radar.

I think the point is this: what are we waiting for? ๐Ÿ‘€ Look around. Appreciate what you have. Wear the new ๐Ÿ‘ shoes. Don’t save the ๐Ÿ‘— dress for some special occasion. Eat the ๐Ÿฐ dessert. Stay up late. Read the ๐Ÿ“šbook. Learn a skill. Start a hobby. Take a walk in the โ˜€๏ธsunshine.

Nothing will be the same in a year, and there’s freedom in that knowledge. So don’t continue to look at life in the same way. It’s not a ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธsprint. Give yourself permission to live and enjoy every moment!๐Ÿ’–
