Living in the NOW


Living in the Now – Dennis Kimbro

Sun Dial

Time is your most precious possession – and the hands of time move swiftly onward. Fasten this warning deep in your mind, not for sorrow’s sake, but to remind yourself that today may be all you have. Now is the time for you to move forward. Now is the time for you to stand up and be counted. The ground is now ready for you to plant the seeds of a new vision, one that will bear only the finest fruit. It is time to focus on what you want, to turn your dreams into realities so that you are able to spend your life in the manner in which you desire. “It is later than you think.”Too many of us waste our years waiting for better times in the future or reflecting upon better times in the past, instead of working for better times in the present. If only we could have lived in better times. If only we lived with better people or had better parents. If only we lived in a better home or under better conditions. If only we had better schooling, better opportunities, or better resources. If, if, if! Tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow!The problem with waiting till tomorrow is that when it finally arrives, it is called today. Today is yesterday’s tomorrow. The question is what did we do with yesterday’s opportunity? All too often we waste tomorrow as we wasted yesterday, and as we are wasting today. All that could have been accomplished can easily elude us, despite our intentions, until we inevitably discover that the things that might have been have slipped from our embrace a single, unused day at a time. Each of us must pause frequently to remind ourselves that the clock is ticking. The same clock that began to tick from the moment we drew our first breath will also someday cease. The only moment in which we live our lives is now. We may pretend that we live in the past, or we may imagine that we live in the future, but the only moment we can ever live is this very moment – the now!
