Why Repeat Myself?

:

This post, from August 2009, sums up how I am feeling tonight, at a point in this new adventure where I can begin to use hours instead of days to countdown:

No matter how hard you try, you won’t get to see everyone, do everything and be everywhere you want to be before you leave. So, just let it all go.
I got to hang out with family tonight for a couple hours. It will probably be the last time I see my dad, sister and one of my brothers before I leave, as Monday is going to be jam packed and Tuesday we’re getting up at 6 a.m. I had made plans last week to see a couple of (now-former) co-workers that did not materialize. Rescheduled for tomorrow, that unfortunately got demoted. It just happens.

Here is a shot from this weekend of myself and Amanda, one of my best friends, chilling during downtime performing in a Murder Mystery Weekend in Bethlehem, PA. Precious time before the big take off on Tuesday, but it was well worth it. No matter how hard you try, you won’t get to see everyone, do everything and be everywhere you want to be before you leave. So, just let it all go? I would update that for 2013 to, “make the moments you have left count.” It might sound cliche but, if you’re thinking that, you’re wasting time not making moments count, Negative Nancy.
