Today is a semi anonymous guest post. She’s a blogger known to many of you, and whilst happy for you to know who she is, would prefer no direct reference. Here’s the link to her blog.
As always, your comments and thoughts are greatly appreciated. Handing you over now….
We dream, plan and foresee.
We envision what will one day be.
We have goals, hopes and visions.
We yearn for the elusive perfection.
We are overwhelmed by life.
We have so much going on.
We get caught up in the mundane.
We delay, wait and hesitate.
We wait because we don’t have time to spare.
We wait because money is too scarce.
We wait for it to be the “perfect” place and moment.
We wait because we think we have many tomorrows.
We are tired and harried.
We have obligations and stress.
We live from day to day.
But forget to live the moments along the way..
Until something happens.
Until something hits us hard.
Until we see someone’s hopes and dreams turn uncertain.
Until we see that tomorrow is not a given for any person.
Will we live in health to a ripe old age?
Will we pass on in our younger days?
We will get sick and overcome the disease?
Will we fall ill and never be quite the same?
There are days these questions are your reality.
They are the days when mortality is a harsh actuality.
What your friend is going through could have easily been you.
You are never warned when trials and tribulations are coming through.
Life has a way of hurrying quickly along.
Years feel like minutes, time goes on.
Decades pass in a blink of an eye.
Time ticks away and passes us by.
We need to believe in our future and in the promises it holds.
We need to plan, wish and hope for a future as bright as gold.
Yet we also need to live each minute like there are no more days.
We need to live in the moment, in the here and now is the only way.
The simple beauty of each minute and hour is something to cherish.
Love the people who enrich your life for they are your strength and power.
If you live each moment of life in joy as it unfolds.
No matter what tomorrow brings you’re already living like someone wise and old.
Do you all live in the moment or like me sometimes get so bogged down with the day to day that you miss the special everyday moments?
