“525,600 minutes how do you measure a year, in daylight, in sunsets, in midnights, in cups of coffee, in inches, in laughter, in strife? 525,600 minutes, how do you measure a year in the life?” Not only is the single Seasons of Love sung by Rent an all-time choir classic, it’s a song that makes you think about how you spend the short amount of time you’re given on this life. With the short amount of moments we are given in life it’s important that we make sure every moment is worth capturing. When I think of someone who lives by this idea it is my cousin, Darien. She makes the most of every moment. When she’s on the farm she always makes sure that she stays busy and is accomplishing as many tasks as she can. Yet, she will still take a break from the work to make a fun memory of going on a random road or fishing trip. Simply put, she makes sure her time here on Earth is will spent no matter if she’s working, hanging with friends, or spending valuable time with family. A verse that I like that has a similar message is Jeremiah 4:14: “Yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.”
The reason for this blog isn’t to tell you how to spend your time, but instead to enjoy every moment you are given on this earth, and take in every moment. Maybe you remember these moments by pictures, by journaling, or maybe by just thinking back to certain moments in your life. No matter how you capture the moment, make sure you take time out of your busy schedule to make moments worth capturing. On here you will find pictures that represent some of the great moments I have captured since my year as a State Officer and here at K-State.
Have a great Thanksgiving,
