Carpe Diem...Seize the day!
I have been thinking a lot about time. Especially in the last 4 years after losing both of my parents. We are each given a certain amount of time on this earth. We can't buy time back. We can't retrieve, or relive the past. The only tangible thing we have is the moment. So seize the moments. Embrace the possibilities of now. Stop worrying so much about the future (preparing is good, but worry just causes stress)...and live today. LIVE IT! Do something you love, call someone you miss. Sew something, grow something. Cook something, do something. We have today! It is ours. Own it! Tomorrow it will be gone and there is no getting it back. You can't change the future either. So the best we can do is to embrace the present. My daughter loves to say: The past is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift...that is why we call it the Present.
So give yourself the gift of today...Live in the present. And don't delay the kind acts, words, letters for tomorrow. We do not know how many tomorrows we will have. But we have today, and we can, we should make the most of it! So Carpe Diem...Seize TODAY!
Changing the world...ONE letter at a time!
