I got a card today from my Dad. I think he meant for me to get it before break, but I didn’t have time to check my mail before we left to visit the little girls. Anyway, it had a couple quotes in it that he thought I would enjoy:
Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted. -Albert Einstein
It is good to have an end to journey toward but, it is the journey that matters in the end. -Ursala K. LeGuin
I think that is something that we all definitely need to be reminded of now and then. I’m sure we all get caught up in getting too anxious to get where we are headed that we forget to enjoy the journey that takes us there. I know I do. It is hard to remember to focus on the little things in life instead of only the major milestones. I can’t wait to graduate, I can’t wait to get married, I can’t wait to have my own house to decorate, I can’t wait to have kids… my list goes on of big things in my future that I’m excited about. I’m glad that I have things I want to do, but today, and all the little things that make up each day, matter too.
Slow down and enjoy life. It is not only the scenery you miss by going too fast–you also miss the sense of where you are going and why. -Eddie Cantor
He also sent me a pair of green shamrock lens glasses for St. Patrick’s Day. Haha 🙂
Happy Monday! Oh and it is also Pi day too! (3.14…)
