I Forgot

My sister sent me this quote on Pinterest the other day…and I can’t stop thinking about it.

I started thinking about all of the things that I’ve forgotten about myself and what I like to do.

I love to swim. I always have. I was a swimmer for years and years, did you know that? I had a good chance to swim in college but I quit my junior year because I was sick of my coach, wanted a job for money and wanted to spend more time with my boyfriend. *smacks head* One of my biggest regrets, even if I would have decided against swimming in college. I would have had the chance.

I love to play piano. I took lessons for around 11 years and I was pretty good. Not Carnegie Hall worthy or anything, nothing like the girls in Tiger Mother, but good. And I love to play. It’s difficult but exhilarating to get a new piece and learn how to play it fluently and with meaning.

I love to dance. I’m not any good, but I enjoy it. Nowadays, I only dance when vodka’s involved or in my kitchen. I used to dance at school dances, at clubs, anywhere and I didn’t feel self-conscious. What changed?

I love riding my bike. I started going on long bike rides late last summer and I can’t wait until the weather gets warmer here so I can start up again. I really want a new bike too.

I love being with my friends. Sometimes in the midst of this crazy life, my friendships can take a back burner and I miss my girls like crazy. I need my friends.

I love being outside. We’re a pretty outdoorsy family, but I’d forgotten how much I just love to be outside. Doing nothing, reading a book, smelling the air, whatever. Just being outside.

Is there anything you’ve forgotten that you loved?
