I’m not afraid to live in the moment anymore.
I spent most of my life obsessively worrying about the future and analyzing every possible scenario I could think of. I wasted all that time, because there are very few aspects of life that I can really exert any control over.
There is actually peace that comes with this realization. The things that I want, the things I fear, the things that stress me… Only God has any power over them.
Yet throughout my life, tragedies and trials have always led to something better that I never could have imagined. I may not always understand the bigger plan, but I do believe there is one and that it’s way beyond my ability to comprehend.
I have been blessed far more than I deserve, and I have such a great life. Instead of worrying about what I can’t control, I want to spend my time enjoying what I already have. It’s too easy to let time slip away, and you can’t get time back once it’s gone.
As the incomparable Margaret Becker once sang, “we may never have this day again
So let us love
Like we could love
We may never pass this way again
So let us love, love, love
Like we could love”
