personal | live full

A few weeks ago (more like a month now) my friend Rachel came to Louisville and spent the Saturday with me. I like it when Saturdays are filled with quality time with friends, donuts, hiking and photos of course. We got Nord’s donuts and went hiking over at the Falls across the river.

It’s been awhile since I’ve had a Saturday like that. I’ve got a part time job besides photography now, so between that and studying, I feel like life suddenly got overwhelmingly busy. Busy is okay. I don’t think it’s a bad thing, as long as it only lasts for a season. As long as you’re still truly living your life to the fullest. 

I don’t want to race through this life like I’m living for the next moment. I want to live full right now. If I am laughing with a friend in a coffeeshop or in my element taking photos of a couple in love. If I am sweeping the floor at work or forcing myself to get out of bed in the morning. If I am hiking a mountain alone and Jesus feels really close. If I am exhausted at the end of the day and Jesus feels really far. Wherever I am, whatever I do, whoever I’m with: I want to live life full. 

We only have one life after all.
