lazy summer days

by Sam

My window is open right now and the breeze is blowing in behind me, as I lay propped up against the pile of navy pillows that sits at the top of my bed. I’ve been lying here for hours now just thinking and writing- so against my nature! Usually, I’m running around, constantly trying to get ahead of everything: cleaning, shopping, organizing, planning, working out, calling friends. But so far, today’s been different, and I’m not complaining. I forgot how nice it is to simply relax for once. I feel so in control.

Everyday, there is always this rush to get ahead, at least cross something off your bucketlist, live your life! Don’t get me wrong, I constantly seek adventure, excitement; I hate watching time go to waste. Yet sitting here now makes me realize, sometimes time needs to be wasted in order to keep us truly alive.
