“And in the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.” -Abraham Lincoln
Each day there are a variety of opportunities we have. Depending on circumstances, we choose to let many of these opportunities slip by or ignore the implications of them. How many times have you seized the moment and made yourself a part of it? How many times have you regretted not taking the time to explore what you have in front of you? These questions deserve some thought to make our lives more meaningful. In this harried world we are distracted by a variety of occurrences ( work, people, social media, money, advertisements,etc.). With so much stimuli, sometimes we may want it all; but need to be more selective in what we are capable and willing to handle. Priorities come into play when deciding what is best for us. It may mean stopping to read an article on saving money rather than getting online to buy a new gadget. I may be shoveling the deck rather than eating a cookie. Whatever you feel will help maintain your well being can be seen as an opportunity worth taking. In the upcoming days, try seeing the opportunities you have to choose from and take time to enjoy.
