Live in the moment.

Standard

Things I have learned about life by living in Mexico 10:

Live in the moment. Just like that. There is no planning your summer internship in November in Mexico. There’s no studying for the SATs in first grade. There’s just, right now, I’m sitting with my friends and enjoying life. Or right now, I am doing this homework that is the worst ever. Or right now, I am having a diarrhea attack. Or right now, I am enjoying my last few days in Mexico and not panicking about my return. Many people in many different situations have told me “tú tranquila” (maybe I already mentioned this?). Anyways, after a while I noticed the trend. It means calm down. And not an obnoxious calm down like you see parents saying to a kid mid-temper tantrum. It’s more like a “be calm”. Or a “don’t worry be happy.”
