Today is a gift.
Let us not waste it.
Tomorrow may never come.
Be present – right here – in the moment.
The fact that we are alive right now is a miracle.
Over the years, friends from high school have died.
One crushed by a car.
One by an apparent suicide.
One died on a hike.
A dear friend from law school died on my birthday a few years back after being struck by a car while she was pumping gas.
Live today as if it is your last.
See if that helps focus you.
Let’s you see what is truly important.
And what is not.
Not offering this from a place of fear.
But rather one of strength and love.
For today, let us ground ourselves in the moment.
And savor the sunrise, the sunset and every instance in between.
We are all truly living on borrowed time.
Let’s make the most of it.
