As I lie in bed, I try to focus on my breathing. Deep inhale and a strong exhale. I imagine my breath as light entering my body and healing me where needed.
In the distance I can hear the kitchen clock ticking away. Its sound reminds me of time passing by. Each second. Each minute. Each hour. Each day. It disappears. Never to return.
Time, like so many things in our life, is something we easily take for granted. How foolish we are to think we have a lot of time!
Truth is, the only time we are guaranteed is this absolute present moment. So why do we waste time stressing about what has happened? Why do we waste time on what may not ever happen?
When we "live" in the past or future, we are dismissing this moment.
Before you know, it will be gone.
Just a memory.
