Life moves relentlessly forward one day at a time, and there is nothing any of us can do to stop it or slow it down.
We are all getting older every day, but we don't have to grow older every day. Taking time to day-dream, visit a friend, or just have coffee with your significant other is time well-spent.
There is a rush to tomorrow by all of us. We are being prodded into the future by faster computers, shorter delivery times, and a general need to have it, do it, and see it all: NOW!
Take time today for yourself.
Take time to breathe in life, all of it: its color, splendor, smells, tastes, and sounds. From the smallest most insignificant event to the things you have taken for granted.
Tomorrow will be here before you know it.
Today will be a distant memory before you realize it. We create our futures and memories in the present. Go through life today, conscious of your surroundings.
Today is a gift of life.
Live it with gratitude and don't let the sun set today without seeing it, embracing it, and enjoying it.
Why are you in such a rush anyway?
You can't have it all, do it all, learn it all, see it all, become it all, teach it all, in one lifetime so why frustrate yourself and those who are in your immediate life circle with this relentless drive for whatever.
I am not suggesting "vegetable status" here. I am only asking you to evaluate your life philosophy and this need for something - that is missing in your life - and trying to make up for it by an over zealous push for something, anything.
One way to determine where you fit on this do nothing to trying to do everything continuum is to honestly get in touch with your ability to do NOTHING. Just sit or walk and reflect.
No agenda, no deadline, just a laid back approach to life once in a while.
