Time Is Ticking...

I can't believe how this summer is just flying past us. Each year I swear summer gets shorter and shorter. This summer is a bit different though, some of our best friends are leaving us to go onto bigger and better things. Our friend, Jeff, is leaving this next week to go to Chicago and make something of himself at school. Later, we will say goodbye to Kevin, and Audrey too. I know we will see them again, but I'm going to miss the time with them. While the majority of our friends will still be here, which I am very thankful for, its just not going to be the same without the whole group together.
Sometimes I think I just want to get out of here, start fresh at school, and make a great adventure out of it. I hear all my friends talking, Lawyers, Doctors, Nurses, Politicians.. and I think to myself, 'well I just do hair'. And then after a moment I realize how much I really enjoy my job. I really love what I do and I would not change how I have planned out my life. I'm happy with my husband, and I know he is just as happy with me.
I sometimes think how different life would be if I had not met Joey, he had a chance to go to college on a football scholership in Virginia, but some unfortunate events in his life kept him from going. At the time he was very upset, but now he tells me he is so glad at the outcome of not going. And trust me... I am too :)
We all think about the "What If's" in life, and I have realized that you cannot clog your mind with those thoughts, they will tear you apart inside and make you forget what is really important. Instead, think of all the positives in your life that you have now that you would not have if you had gone a different road in life. You will realize how great you really have it.
And besides, I think I would miss my family too much if I left :)
