Whether Chanukah, summer, 4th of July, or other holiday/season, how often do we live in the moment and enjoy what is happening NOW? A Facebook group I follow posts seasonal images, nature pics, and Who remembers ___? like “Who Remembers grilled cheese sandwiches with tomato soup?” (I DO!!! and I would love one right now… except for the fact it is Passover and I can’t have bread…). I am intrigued by the sage wisdom and the variety of viewpoints posted in the comments. Today is April 25 and a photo of a decorated pine tree captioned ‘8 months until Christmas’ appeared in my newsfeed. Curious as the replies, I read:
- It comes fast enough. There are other important dates between now and December.
- We have spring, summer, and fall. We’ve had a long winter and want to think about something other than snow.
- Don’t rush your life away.
- Pretty tree.
While I didn’t read all 1300 comments, the consensus of those I read was ENJOY THE HERE AND NOW.
The month is APRIL. It is SPRING. It is PASSOVER. It is SPRING BREAK. #Gratitude. #LiveInTheMoment. What are YOU enjoying now? Thanks for reading.
