Every step, every breath, every choice…every day, every person… MATTERS!
Sometimes life feels like a long to-do list that you read while going up a big mountain-top climb. The exhaustion is overwhelming and it feels as if there is nothing left inside to give. Then we rest for a moment before crawling forward again…just one more agonizing step.
I once heard that it helps to be present to the birds singing and the beauty of the path as you walk it….to cherish each moment as it happens because each moment MATTERS. I have come to learn that it really does help. At the end of the day, the path, the trudge, the walk, the run through the rain and the sleet and the snow, will seem a little less burdensome. Our experience of each moment defines how we live. Not being present in the path along the way means that we miss out on our life because life is lived in moments, and then memories of those moments. We really only have ONE moment…and THIS is it!
Live life for the moment because everything else is uncertain
You can only live your life one moment at a time, so why not do it consciously, intentionally, and appreciatively? Don’t wait for the moment when all is right in the world because it will never happen. Don’t wait until one of those rare moments occur when everything falls into place, everything goes right and everything works. Steal the moment right now…it’s the moment you’ve been waiting for.
