Every week I get a feed from The Ripples Project, a project started by Paul Wesselman who felt that by making a small change you can truly make a larger one that effect many people. This week one of the quotes that were shared I felt was kind of an interesting one.
Now is Now.
And it’ll be now later on too.
Now is sort of a continual gray area of time,
sandwiched between then and yet.
Now is quite plentiful really,
so it’s not like you need to worry and stress
to take advantage of now.
But if you don’t take advantage of now,
it becomes then.
The trick is to see yet as it approaches,
take advantage of yet as it becomes now
and turn now into a then
when you arrive at a new now.
But by far, the best now of all is now.
So my question: How do you all take advantage of now?
For me, I try my best to stay in the moment and enjoy the time that I have, but I find this isn’t always easy. I tend to plan, thinking ahead for things to come so staying “in the moment” is not always an easy thing to do. Yet, as I read this, I am reminded of the importance of being “in the moment” and how these “now” moments will only be here fleetingly…so I guess I do need to pay closer attention to these in the future…
