Now is the Time

Right before your very eyes, right now, life is happening. Does it unfold exactly as planned and as exactly as you expect? No. Good! What makes life rich and what makes you rich now, as you live, is that it provides fresh, unexpected opportunity at every turn. 

Are some of the turns and twists hard to handle? Yes, the road you travel in life can be very rough; but, there is no such thing as the "meantime." In the meantime, we wait or we suffer through life. Some day something amazing awaits us. Hello McFly! That something is before you now. Life and all of the meaning of life is right before you now. 
Are you paying attention? Are you truly living life right now? If it really feels tough at this moment, take a look at this youtube video:
If a man without limbs can find meaning right here, right now, as he is, then most of us probably can as well. This is a gift that we have here on earth with each other. We share a miraculous gift of life. 
No matter how challenging it might be, you certainly don't have the luxury of life in too many other locales, besides the friendly confines of planet earth. Give a little thanks for the gift in the present. There is no need to wait until things get "better." Soak it all in now. Basque in this special opportunity that is happening. It is life. Make the most of life today.

    Short, sweet and to the point!!!! Thank you Donovan! In the midst of all we talk about I still find myself doubting, or feeling lost, or giving up on myself! Then you add the video of Nick and a few boohoo minutes later I realize I need to quit worrying about the next hour, the next day, the next week! Have faith in God for those things and go do what "I" have control over; what I will do with my NOW! Thanks my friend for another great post!

    Donovan, simply put THANKS! Short, sweet and simple yet to the point! Even with all the discussions you and I have I still find myself facing doubt, wanting to give up, feeling sorry for myself and then YOU post the video of Nick! A few boohoo minutes later I find myself realizing I need to quit worrying about the next hour, next day, next week, etc. Leave that in God's hands and make the most of what "I" do have control over; what I am going to do with my NOW! Thanks my friend!!! Great post!

    Nick Vujicic's videos have been inspirational for many and I have not been untouched as well. Its absolutely true that we have no control over our future and we have no way to change the past , its only the present that I can impact and I must! A good read. Thanks
