“I wish there were a way to know that you’re in the golden days when you’re still actually in them.”
– Andy Bernard from The Office series finale

Did that line make anyone else tear up while watching the series finale? It’s been stuck in my mind for the last few months. It’s so easy to get discouraged with where we are in life and wish away days, weeks, months, even years– but what if we’re missing the golden days by doing so? I want to learn to savor the busy weeks, monotonous tasks, and disappointments just as much as the vacations, relaxing Saturdays, and time with friends and family. I’m tired of constantly looking forward and never stopping to be grateful for the here and now. I want to live in the golden days while I’m still actually in them.
