I’ve been marathoning Parks and Rec over the last few weeks (confession: I did not watch it over the last six years. I know. I’m sorry). Finished season 6 tonight, and the parts where Leslie has tried to figure out what the hell she wants to do next with her life rang so true.

I understand that it wasn’t the show’s strongest season, but I felt that, in a way, it was the truest. Who hasn’t watched their dreams shatter or had people they loved move away or faced decisions that turn their entire worlds upside down?

At one point, Leslie talks it out with Ron, and he offers this bit of wisdom:

One day — this year or maybe the next — you’re gonna be somewhere else. So enjoy yourself now.

That was exactly what Leslie — and I — needed. Thanks for the reminder, Ron.
