“There’s no present like the time.”
~ Babul from The Second Exotic Marigold Hotel
It seems that we all have an expiration date which most of us do not know. So to live without remembering that knowledge is to hide our heads in the sand like ostriches. I’m not saying that we should live in fear of death, but to remember that this present moment is indeed a present. A gift that we should not waste.
Life moves quickly these days. Many people live longer lives, but take less time for themselves. Rushing to every event, whatever it may be, keeping busy on the computer, the smart phones etc., takes time away from being present in the present moment. I understand we all have responsibilities, but we must carve out a few moments to simply be in the stillness of the present moment. To reconnect with ourselves, our families, nature and all the gifts that are ours when we stop the rush in the insanity of life. To actually take a moment to breathe, to listen to our hearts and minds, to hold hands, to reconnect with loved ones, to simply love that we are here, right here and now, wherever we may be, in whatever capacity life holds for us.
Time is a gift. Use it wisely. Don’t squander it on meaningless pursuits. You can make a difference in your life and in the lives of others. You have the power within you. Be grateful for the present and use your power for good, for you are loved.
