Way back in 2011, I had a different vision of where our lives would be post wedding. These future visions fluttered through my mind when I was compiling our wedding registry. Chuck and I would entertain guests so we needed proper dinnerware. We would even host out-of-town guests, so we would live in a multiple bedroom, living space, preferably a house.
Naturally, I registered for a gorgeous navy blue Nicole Miller bedroom set for our Master Suite. Our current, fairly new, chocolate-brown, pin-tuck, Target comforter would have a new place in our guest bedroom.
Days after we returned from our honeymoon, a huge package was delivered to our doorstep. It was the Nicole Miller bedroom set, I had scanned with dreams of grandeur. The present was given to us by my Aunt, Uncle and Cousin. I rearranged our bedroom closet and put it in the back. This most definitely would be broken out in our new home.
Fast forward to last week. We haven’t moved, the multiple bedrooms don’t exist, unless you count the living room, when we both fall asleep together watching TV on the couch. I decided to break out that comforter – for no other reason than I wanted to. I figured ‘Seize the Day’. I thought why wait for that larger place, with mortgage payments and more space to clean?
There truly is no day like today.
You know what, we probably slept the best night sleep we have ever had. It was a luxurious experience, like a massive hotel room bed, was delivered to our apartment.
So my message to you is Carpe Diem or Seize the Day (or the comforter). Live life to its fullest, you will never know what you are missing. As the saying goes, life is a journey not a destination. I can tell you right now, I have been thinking about my new luxury all day.
If there is something you have been thinking about doing lately for yourself, a spa treatment, going to a sports game or even a trip away. Do it! Don’t wait for some future moment. Live for today.
