“Happiness is achieved when you stop waiting for your life to begin and start making the most of the moment you are in.” Germany Kent
People always try to live in the moment but usually there’s something that distracts us or somewhere we all go in our minds. Tonight, I lived in the moment. There were a few reasons for this: one, I was surrounded by people I adore. There’s this group of ten of us and honestly whenever I’m with them I feel elated. We started the night together and ended it together, enjoying every minute in between. When someone got lost in the crowd, we went to find them together. When someone needed water, we went together. I am completely myself with them and they are with me, which creates a mutual trust that I find to be invaluable. The second reason is because I was dancing. It was not a solitary dance party, though everyone knows that I love those. It was a dance party that tons of the student body attended. The third reason is because it gave me a chance to distance myself from the events looming on the horizon. It gave me a moment to break away from the sadness I’ve been feeling and let me embrace the energy that flowed through the music.
While I was dancing in the quad with the beautiful Tufts buildings around me, the cold night’s breeze, and the dazzling stage lights — I knew that there was nowhere else I should be and no other people I should be with. That’s when it’s feasible and blissful to live in the moment.
Wishing you all the happiest of weekends ♥️
