Life as we know it is fickle. All of this as we know it could be gone in the blink of an eye. The uncertainty that looms over every moment of each day is frightening, but it also hills promise. With each day like a fresh canvas, you, the painter, have to decide what to make of the limitless possibilities life has to offer. Either commit your time to produce a true work of art or do nothing and leave behind a blank slate.
As we’re not promised tomorrow, or better yet, the rest of today, our shining moment is now. The time we have should be spent building relationships with the people that matter and doing the things we find to be intriguing, challenging, entertaining, and passion-driven. Getting the most out of the very present while we still can is the best bet for coping with the unpredictable nature of events in our daily lives. There is a sense of comfort and pride that comes with knowing that we are chipping away at our dreams and aspirations with every given moment. The satisfaction gradually builds as the anxiety subsides, making room for indelible progress.
When you think about it, life is simply a compilation of a series of ‘nows’. And if we’ll capitalize on these ever fleeting moments, we will come to realize just how much more invigorating life can be. Make it worthwhile.
