Fail, fail, fail, fail, succeed

This Moment

This is it folks. Right now. This moment, and what we choose to do with it. Everything that came before is gone – a memory. What is to come is largely unknowable and out of our control . This is the truth that takes a lifetime to learn. What meaning will we give to this moment? What meaning are we capable of giving to this moment? I seem to become more and more aware of this the older I get. This truth is neither good nor bad, and it doesn’t care whether you are aware of it or not. Our lives are a collection of these moments, lived sequentially, until they stop. When you begin to look at life this way, it has a way of making you feel grateful for what you have and the beautiful realization that this moment is yours to do with as you please.
