A Little Daydreaming.

“Celebrate we will because life is sweet but short for certain.”-Dave Matthews Band.

Max Patch, NC

Life is short. We hear it often, but does it really sink in? Are we ever able to really understand that one day we won’t be able to wake up to the sound of the rain or enjoy a picnic at our favorite place in the mountains? I feel like the only people who truly grasp it are those who are given a certain amount of time to enjoy their life. But shouldn’t we all live each day like it could be our last?

I spend a good amount of time not doing the things I’ve always wanted to with the excuse “Oh, I’ll do it one day.” But honestly, nothing in life is certain. We’ve got to just take life by the hand and let it bring us where it will. Some things we back away from because we’re scared or uncertain, and other times there’s something from our past that’s blocking us. The important thing to realize is that we can live our lives however we want instead of constantly living to please others. Wouldn’t you want to be able to say that you lived your life the way you did because you wanted to and not because that’s how you were told to live it?

We all have that one place that we go to think. Somewhere where we can just let our worries go and just live in the moment. That place for me is Max Patch Summit in North Carolina. Max Patch is a huge grassy bald that has a 360 degree view of mountains. Seriously, every direction you turn you see mountains. It’s one of the most magical places I’ve ever been, and I hope to go back this Spring when the weather is nice. I can just picture bringing a group of people up and have some playing music, some talking, and some just laying in the grass looking up at the clouds. I’m smiling just thinking about it, and I’m not even there. The ability of our mind to escape to some place safe and peaceful is both a curse and a blessing. More times than not though, I find it to be a blessing. A little daydreaming never hurt anybody, right?
