Today's Truth and Beauty: The time is now. En♥, -me!
We spend a lot of our energy on our concern for time. We live in an age where time is truly of essence to nearly everyone and everything. Convenience has become synonymous with less time, and we seem to be so consumed with the idea of "maximizing" our days (waking hours) that while completing one task, we literally count the minutes to the next and figure out how many minutes that task will take us to complete. Just as Brooks professed in "The Shawshank Redemption," "The world went and got itself in a big damn hurry." Because of our fascination with time, we neglect to enjoy the present; we are so fixated on the past and the future. As such, despite our efforts, many of us still come up short on accomplishing our goals and fulfilling the true desires of our hearts. The truth and beauty is in recognizing that whether we feel like we are peering down the road behind us or the road ahead of us, we can only be where we are, which is here, NOW. Look around, and carpe momentum (seize the moment)! The time to get started is now; and, the next time someone asks, "What time is it?," offer the honest reply, "Now!"
"You can't change the past, but you can ruin the present by worrying about the future." – Unknown
