Almost everyone knows the song “You’re Gonna Miss This” by Trace Adkins (if you haven’t, I recommend listening to it). I choke up every time I listen to this song because I can relate to it.
When I was little I couldn’t wait to grow-up, I wanted to make my own money and make my own rules. Now I am almost an adult I have come to the conclusion that I grew-up way to fast. I remember thinking how cool it would be to turn 16 so that I could get a license, go to high school and get a job. I never realized how easy it was being a kid.
The only thing you worried about was getting caught running in the house or having to flip your card in elementary school. There is so much more to worry about as an adult like, getting to work on time, paying bills, and having enough money to buy food. Why grow-up so fast?
Enjoy every moment before you have to grow-up. We are going to want these moments back one day, embrace every moment you have left, before you have to grow-up. You may not know it now, but these are some of the best times of your life, I know they are for me. The good times, hard times, fun times, and bad times.
“These are some good times, so take a good look around, you may not know it now but you’re gonna miss this.”-Trace Adkins (You’re Gonna Miss This.)
