One of the great lies we tell ourselves is that there will always be time...time to do all the things we want to do, we need to do and we have to do. There will always be enough time to exercise and eat right. There will always be enough time to travel. Time, my friend, is not, I repeat, not, always on our side.
When you think about it, time is a man-made construct developed to help us keep track of our daily lives and responsibilities. It really doesn't exist. We write dates and appointments down on calendars so we know when to show up for things, but we forget to show up for ourselves, and for those we cherish in our lives. The ultimate truth is, there is only now. Now. That's all there is.
If we don't live in the Now, we aren't really living.
That last sentence bears repeating: If we don't live in the Now we aren't really living. This is true whether you are eating, drinking, having sex, taking out the garbage or writing a blog. Now is all we have. Be present. It may seem like there is always time, but that's not really so.
This blog was inspired by the news that two people I know of are in critical situations, life and death I guess. Knowing this makes me value the time I have been given and reminds me to keep them, and everyone, in my thoughts and prayers, while living my own truth...my own Now.
