No one really knows if we will wake up tomorrow to live another day; how long we have together, to love and be loved, to experience and give kindness or to share ourselves completely with another person.
To put aside our ‘should haves and regrets,’ real life always has obstacles in the way~ a debt that never seems to get paid, deadlines that seem to stretch out beyond our definition of time, heartbreaks that place fear between another chance to feel love… there are so many things we think we have to do first in order to move on. The truth is that these obstacles are a part of our real life and they are the forthcoming foot prints along our journey.
The tendency to wait for the perfect conditions; to balance timing with convenience is the greatest tragedy in life. It’s like waiting for that perfect rose garden to grow when all the while we could be enjoying the roses that are blooming right outside our window.
The present time has a powerful advantage over any other time that we know; it belongs to no one but ourselves. If we choose to put it into a space, later on there will be nothing there. If we choose to put it on hold, we will never hold it again.
Think of all the years that the Universe has graced us and know that our time together has been set and aligned within the stars. Know that each moment is within our reach and our time has come and will pass nevermore.
