Inspiration Prompt – Make The Most Out Of Your Present

September 14th, 2009 by Avital

TimeTime is illusive. It always slips away. Always on the move and always at the exact same pace.

We, however, treat time as a constant. We take time for granted and assume it will always be there for us.

This is how our mind tricks us… We know the facts but act oppositely.

We want to call our parents and tell them how much we love them. We want to meet a friend for coffee and laugh. We want to send a card to an old colleague of ours. We want to scrap all the photos from our last vacation. We want to go to the orchard and take photos of the citruses.

We want to do all these things when we will have some more time.

In the meantime, we flip through another magazine. Time passes by. We watch another episode. Time doesn’t stop. We go through Twitter again. Time keeps on running away.

Do we really need more time or do we just need to decide THIS IS THE TIME and make the most out of our present?

“There are many fine things which you mean to do some day,
under what you think will be more favorable circumstances.
But the only time that is surely yours is the present,
hence this is the time to speak the word of appreciation and sympathy, to do the generous deed,
to forgive the fault of a thoughtful friend, to sacrifice self a little more for others.

Today is the day in which to express your noblest qualities of mind and heart,
to do at least one worthy thing which you have long postponed, and to use your God-given abilities for the enrichment of some less fortunate fellow traveler”

Grenville Kleiser, 1868-1953

    This post was a fabulous wake-up call. It’s so true. The idea of time still moving on, even though we watch another episode, was a great way to put it. Carpe diem!
