In the past, these words haven’t really moved me. There have always been the “whats” for the time is now: job, getting married, having kids, buying a house, a car or whatever. I have always needed a “what”, but never understood the “why”.
Today, more than ever, I understand the “why”: Our life. Every part of it.
Why does it have to take something really big or serious to happen for us to realize what is truly important in our lives? The time is now because what matters most in life is right in front of us every day: our friends, loved ones, families, our health, our lives. The time is now to appreciate them, to show our gratitude, to love them and be present. The time is now to enjoy our lives and be grateful for it. You may not have the chance tomorrow.
Don’t wait until you reach the edge of the cliff or for something significant to happen. Enjoy your life now, be present in your every day and be thankful for the blessings you have. Every. Single. One.
