As you may have noticed I have changed my blog a bit. Well basically the only things that stayed were the author (me) and all the previous posts...I guess I just felt like it wasn't matching up with what I am trying to accomplish. I realized this all when I logged on one day and noticed that my background was no longer in existence. I then proceeded to look for new background. As I was searching I was torn because I felt like the backgrounds I liked didn't match the name of the blog...and well I kind of think that things should follow a theme. Anyways, after being torn between backgrounds I liked and keeping the name, I decided to change the name.

What is the new reasoning behind the name you might be wondering...well let me tell you! If you have ever heard the song "Your gonna miss this" by Trace Adkins you will understand the inspiration for the name. If you haven't heard it you are a hopeless human being with no hope in this life. Ok no really though its a good song! You need to hear it! I have even posted the video for your convenience.


Back to topic though, besides really liking this song, I feel like it teaches a really important principle. So often in life we focus on what is going to be next, that we fail to appreciate what is happening now. I know I just wrote a post all about this but its really important and has been on my mind alot lately! I work at a daycare and I often find myself telling parents that one day they will miss their child crying as they separate from them and are forced back into KidsWorld. It seems odd but one day they will miss it. One day they will look back and say where did my little baby go? One day we will all look back and ask ourselves how we got to this point in our lives. One day we will all wonder where time has gone. I know that I don't want to ever regret missing opportunities when they are in front of me. I don't want to look back and be disappointed at the things I missed. I want to soak in each day and learn from it. I want to take time to focus on the present.

Thomas S. Monson once said, "Learn from the past, prepare for the future, live in the present." And that is what I intend to do!

Until later,
