i think its important to remember

I think it is important to remember how short life is, and how important faith, family and love is. i know that is so cliche to say, but i am finding my self reminded of that especially this week, and in the coming weeks.
I am almost done with high school and i feel like it has just flown by. Yesterday i was in the car, and i was just thinking about how short life is and how people come and go out of your lives. I know i can get caught up in wanting to stay up on all the latest fashion and just being straight up selfish in the grand scheme of things. as i was driving i had like an 'aha' moment and i just wanted to share it with you:
they're just clothes. i know, your probably like, duh. but sometimes all i can think about is the next clothing item i can get for me, or the fad that will make me "happier".

I guess i just wanted to get out some of my thoughts, like how clothes and fashion magazines and shoes and bags, as soon as they catch on fire, they're gone.  And as soon as we die, we're gone, its what we did in our lives that make a lasting difference, and what matter. its who we love, help, encourage, encounter, its all of those people. Not things.

We say we waste time, but that is impossible. We waste ourselves.

         time is precious, people are precious, lives are precious. dont take advantage of that.
