Have you ever been asked the question, “What happened to you in life?”
It’s actually not the best question to ask. Instead, the wise question is, “How did you respond to what happened?”
We have the power to take responsibility for our lives and make changes. Starting right now. We are not robots programmed to respond in a certain way. We have free will, and we can choose how we behave and react.
Even when facing our mortality, we can choose how we want to leave this earth.
Life is not a race to the finish line, but rather a journey with a direction. If we don’t change our direction, we’ll end up where we’re headed. It’s easy to get caught up in wishing for a better tomorrow, but what are we doing today to make it happen?
Let’s take hold of what we have right now.
This moment, this “now,” is a precious gift that we’ll never get back. Time is a funny thing, isn’t it? The past, present, and future all exist in this one moment we call “now.” It’s a fleeting moment, a mere second, but it’s where the past meets the future and gives birth to the next “now.”
So let’s not wait for a better tomorrow. Let’s change, learn, grow, and love right now.
This is our time to live, my friend. Let’s make the most of it!
