The other night, my wife and I had some friends over to play cards. As we were playing, and talking, and interacting, my mind hit an interesting point: This is my life. This moment is what I’m currently living. It can be so easy to get bogged down on living that we forget to live.
Are you type of person that doesn’t really realize what happened until afterwards? I can be like that at times. I can remember hosting get togethers and focusing so much on making sure people are comfortable, and worrying about X, Y, or Z, that I forget to enjoy it. Sometimes we get so wrapped up in the doing of life that we forget to do. We get so mesmerized by the actions of life that we forget to act.
Life is meant to be lived, and experienced and enjoyed. There will be moments that will pass by without much fanfare, but don’t let all your moments be swept under the rug to be remembered fondly years down the road. Challenge yourself to be here, now. Be present in your own life.
