The Time Is Now

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.

    There are no truer words. Thank you for this post. It’s something that has been on my heart lately. My daughter turns 3 on Saturday and while, it’s awesome, it’s scary. Seriously, where did these three years go? There is definitely a need to remain present and just enjoy the moment. Last Saturday, I went for a walk with my daughter and she had a blast. I couldn’t get out of my head long enough to see that until the very end. That’s no way to live. Thank you for this post.

      Wow, you are right and that has happened to me, too. Time goes by too fast not to enjoy these moments.

    Amen. The other day, I was driving along and wondered why it is that I don’t do what I should be doing like: work out regularly, blog more often, or meal plan.

    Instead, I waste my time procrastinating & thinking about all the things I’d like to do; waiting for the optimal time to find my groove when I should simply jump in and get going.

    The point should be to live a life with the least regrets. Thanks for the gentle reminder. 🙂
