Deep Creek Lake, Maryland | Stop This Train

Deep Creek Lake Wedding Portrait Photographer
So scared of getting older
I’m only good at being young
So I play the numbers game to find a way to say that life has just begun
Had a talk with my old man
Said, “Help me understand.”
He said, “Turn 68,
you’ll renegotiate
Don’t stop this train
Don’t for a minute change the place you’re in

(Stop This Train | John Mayer)

I turned a year older, just a few days ago, and all of a sudden, life began to speed up.

I began thinking about all of the adventures I want to take, and everything I want to accomplish in life. Then I realized, what am I waiting for? As my family so kindly keeps reminding me, I’m not getting any younger! 🙂

Life is too short to live in the “someday.”

So go on adventures!

Take time off work!

Go out with that guy!

Live! Love! Laugh!
