The closing lines of the new episode of Modern Family this week read: “There are all kinds of milestones in life. The kind you expect to live through; first kiss, birthdays, and graduations. If you’re lucky a wedding or two. Or ever a new edition to the family. Then there’s the kind you’d never dreamed you’d get to live through again. That’s the best kind of all.”
Life is full of great and exciting moments that
sometimes we just skip right over. Young
people always look ahead and older people always look back. For us as young people we need to live in the
here and now. We are presented a very
special and unique situation as student that we will probably never have a
chance to experience again. I constantly
catch myself thinking that I can’t wait to graduate and get into the real
world. The fact is I need to appreciate where
I am right now, because one day I am going to miss this.
Take some time today to think about how lucky you
are to be a student and to be living the life you have. Take some time to appreciate the unique
opportunities student life presents to you.
