Life Moves Pretty Fast

I know the blogosphere is currently saturated with posts about New Year's Resolutions and Goals and whatnot, but this idea has been in my queue since early November.

Recently some friends of mine had their lives completely changed in a matter of twenty-four hours.  Countless others are getting engaged, planning weddings, having kids, moving across the country, getting new jobs, and every other thing under the sun.  Thinking about how much life can change in an instant, gives me pause.  These things happen so quickly that we don't always take the time to realize that everything is changing - and how can we, when we're trying to live in the moment.  I'm always reminded of the quote from Ferris Bueller's Day Off...

While Ferris' antics in high school are questionable, about this one thing he is right.  Life does move pretty fast, and without taking a moment to reflect on where we are, where we've been, where we're going, you can just keep breezing through without appreciating the life you're living.

Seeing my friends go through these changes so quickly, one day they're just dating - the next day they're engaged....or one day they're married - the next day they're expecting their first child, amazes me and makes me appreciate just how quickly everything can happen.  

It is both incredibly amazing and incredibly terrifying that things can change in the blink of an eye and maybe we won't even notice it.  But Ferris taught me, as my fourth school-girl crush (after Marty McFly, Han Solo, and Indiana Jones, of course), to stop and look around every once in a while.
