We should live life to the fullest! What do you remember about your youth? Did you rush through many of the seemingly uneventful times in your life as you grew up? Were you always in such a hurry that you blew past things that you can only dream about now?
I was watching a new TV show this evening; the story line goes something like this… “a protection officer is transported from the year 2077 to 2012 along with eight terrorists who are attempting to escape execution through time travel”.
I mention this episode to help make a point. One of the escapes is walking down the street in the year 2012 and he looks up picturing what the town looks like in his time 2077. My point is this, he was walking the streets in ‘our time’ so to speak, and I was able through the directors eyes to see what the year 2077 might look like. My thoughts as I watched the actor look up at the blue sky and then see the sky scrappers take their place was something like this…
Are there things that I see each and everyday that I take for granted?
Then my thoughts reflected to the news I heard upon returning home from running errands this afternoon – that the little five year old boy in Alabama had been rescued. He is alive! I am so happy for him, and his family. I had been praying for him.
We need to live in the now. Stop fretting about the past. We can’t do anything to change it. Don’t be in such a hurry for tomorrow, the future isn’t promised to us. We must live in the now; time travel hasn’t been invented yet ;-). Seriously we can only effect today. I like the saying “Live Laugh Love”.
- Treat others like you want to be treated.
- Laugh often – it’s like taking a dose of good medicine.
- Enjoy the ‘time’ you are living right now, tomorrow isn’t promised.
When you go outside today (or tomorrow-depending on when you read this) take a look around, a good long look. What colors do you see, what do you smell? Have things changed, or have they remained the same for a long time?
