Over the past 50 plus years it seems as if I spend way too much time wishing.  This habit started at a young age of wishing I was older, wishing it was time for summer, and wishing I was old enough to drive legally and the best one “I can’t wait till I am old enough to move out!”  How often after I moved out I wished to once again be a child and not have to make some of the decisions I had to make.

Now into adult life I find myself sitting and contemplating as I look at the barren trees wishing that spring was here and winter would be over.  Spring will arrive with beautiful flowers and the trees starting to get leaves and before long we will be into the heat of summer and then we will have fall and next comes winter.  Why not enjoy each season for what it brings?

I wonder why is it so hard to be happy with the present?  When riding in our daughter’s car the other day she put the car in reverse and the backup camera is just amazing.  Now I am thinking “Boy, I wish I had a cool backup camera”.   I do have a rear camera on the truck that I really appreciate when backing into a dock or parking space but it does not have those cool lines to guide me.  There I went wishing again.

As we are working on the specs for our new truck it seems as if everyone has one of the New Cascadia’s but us! The grill of the Cascadia is very recognizable and I am anxiously waiting till we can get into the new truck and use all of the new features.  Now the funny part of this is our current 2015 Classic Cascadia has been a great truck and we have zero complaints.  The truck has performed flawlessly and we have received phenomenal fuel mileage since day one and the added bonus this truck is a pleasure to drive.  In the past I have written a few blogs about being a partner with our Cascadia and it truly feels that way as we go down the road.  Steering Wheel Holder

Learning to slow down and enjoy the present instead of fretting about the future is a skill that needs constant practice.  Time marches on and everything will change so learn to enjoy the present and let the future take care of itself.
