Eternity in the present
We want to live forever
Or at least prolong our life
Yet do we ever ask ourselves why
What would living longer do for us when we fail to capture the life we have
In any moment we can find eternity
In any moment the past and the future does not exist
Its just you and the moment
Capture that before you ask for more life
To live in the past.
To live in the past is to die in the present,
What we had, has gone.
Businesses, Relationships, Money, Cool Kid Status…
Whatever it is, is no more.
But that does not mean that we can not rebuild, Because we can.
But we can’t rebuild in the past or the future.
Only in the present.
So we need to snap out of memory lane, dust off the dirt, Pick ourselves up and get to it.
Otherwise, we are just waiting to die.
The grinch couldn’t steal Christmas, because it’s not about the presents under the tree,
Or who has the brightest lights
He couldn’t steal Christmas because you can’t steal someone’s spirit
In these hard times, it may feel like christmas has been stolen,
But that’s only if you allow it to
They can try and blow the flame out of the candle
But it burns from the inside
Nobody can take that away from you
Today kids will run straight to the tree that’s filled with presents, Adults will exchange gifts and visit loved ones (or family of loved ones)
There will be drinks and laughs lots of food and maybe a few fights, But remember today isn’t about the presents under the tree it’s about the presence of you and the people around you,
They are the biggest gift of all, Life is strange, look around they might not be here next year, they may go travelling or lose contact, or you know pass,
But today they are here,
That’s what is important.
Enjoy the present of their presence
