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.
