As I sit here writing this blog post, I can’t help but think that this year is moving way too fast. I could have sworn that it was just yesterday when we were being rushed onto the stage in Elliott Hall of Music as people shouted “slate passed” and “congratulations,” at us down the aisles. Everyone told us to “cherish the moments because in the blink of an eye they’ll be gone.” I never truly understood that saying, but now I’m understanding it way too clearly.
So far in our year of service, my team and I have had the chance to meet new people, visit new places, and try new things. It has been a year of growth, challenges, and changes - all of which will continue in our last four months of office. I remember looking forward to everything we would get to do during our year of service…
At the start of our year, I remember looking forward to everything that was going to happen. But now, I can’t believe these things are already over. Sooner rather than later, we will be stepping on the stage at Elliott Hall of Music one last time. As the year is winding down, take time to appreciate each day. In the blink of an eye, it will be over - cherish the moments you have and don’t take anything for granted.
Living in the moment,
