IT’S SO HARD TO DO SOMETIMES. To live in the “moment” that is. To live in the moment and be thankful for it. To enjoy it. Not rush to the next thing, but really take in what you’re doing even if it doesn’t seem significant at the time. We have to, even in the darkest hour.
I remind myself every single day that life is beautiful even after all the horrible and tragic things that happen on a daily basis. In our home, in our neighborhood, in our society, in our world, there is still so much BEAUTY and LOVE to go around. I strive to live in the moment because we never know when our last moment will be. At any point on any given day our lives can change FOREVER. As we saw this past Friday, the lives of so many will never be the same. I know it’s been a few days, but my heart still hurts.
I can’t help but shed tears for the innocent little lives that were so brutally taken. Precious children are forever gone. Loving and nurturing mentors taken from the lives of their loved ones. I am heart broken for those families. It’s not fair, it really isn’t. But even after dark moments like these, I strive to keep POSITIVE because it’s so easy to turn to anger and allow hate into our hearts. And that only feels worse. I am thankful for the ability to recognize that even after so much bad, we live in a beautiful world. It’s not easy, but I can’t allow myself to fear this world and to fall apart.
I am thankful for TODAY. I am thankful for LIFE. Today I count my BLESSINGS. Today I LIVE the moment.
