What’s the antidote for falling prey to this?
My mind never stops wondering, and there’s so much to absorb. I’m fascinated by my shear existence, and can’t seem to get full on what I’ve already done and come to know. Sharing my life with others capable of seeing their existence in a similar fashion, and hopefully helping to inspire those, who can’t. Everyone has the capacity to grow in some respect, and it comes from the hunger within each and every one of us.
19,618 opportunities to see this happen, and I’m still amazed by its beauty. Each one uniquely symbolizing a brand new day with its color and contrast. Each one counting down the number of opportunities remaining for us. Being aware of what that means, free of anxiety or dread from what it takes away.
Time has always fascinated me with how we perceive it in life. We anticipate the future, wanting the present to move out its way. While we lament its passing, longing for its recovery. Isn’t every experience time well spent, if we gain some piece of understanding from it?
Life is too short to ignore, and too long to anticipate. Live it with your heart, and all of your senses, trying to spend as little time as possible living it inside your head…
