Five Minute Friday: Present
It is Friday which means it is time to link up with Lisa-Jo Baker for Five Minute Friday again. This means: write for five minutes flat, no editing, just let it pour out of your fingers. This week's caption is
The present. Right now. This very moment. I try not to worry about the future too much. I try not to look back to my past too much. I try to live in the now.
I see the days on the calendar fly by and I try to remind myself each day that right now, this very moment, is a present given to me. Each morning it is carefully wrapped up, waiting for me to open the bow, take off the wrapping paper and look inside. What does it hold today? Will there be happiness? Will there be joy and delight? Or will I feel overwhelmed and tired? And will I be able to live consciously, remembering from time to time as the day - this present, this gift - unfolds how lucky I am to be here and to just be?
