“Lay hold of today’s task, and you will not need to depend so much upon tomorrow’s. While we are postponing, life speeds by.” – Seneca

We have right now. We might not be here tomorrow and frankly, we have right now. What else are we going to do with this moment? Are we going to click on another online ‘article’ about ten more reasons we can’t live without Chia seeds?

Or are we going to spend some time working on becoming better people? On working on the things we want to accomplish? On spending time on what is important? Truly important.

We can’t get any of this stuff called time back. It ticks away one second at a time. Sixty of those become minutes, then hours, before we know it a whole day is wasted and we are no closer to becoming better. At anything.

We can use this time to read. To write. To reflect. To develop a skill.

If we carry a book around with us all the time and read while we are waiting in line, while we are waiting anywhere. Even if it’s only for ten minutes a day, that is sixty hours of reading a year. We can read a lot of books in sixty hours.

We could learn a lot, do a lot, become better with these moments.

Because these moments are our lives. Let’s live them.
