My Christmas cactus bud blossomed, sharing its powerful and beautiful essence for but a fleeting day or two.
Life’s like that, too. You have to grab the beauty of the moment or it’s gone. You have to enjoy the moment, live it to the fullest or you’ll look back and say, ‘What happened to the time?’
I’m a firm believer in living in the moment. After all, what can you do about the past? It’s already a done deal. What can you do about the future? It’s in your hands, but you can only be and do now, in the present.
Today is only yesterday’s tomorrow. But it’s really all there is.
Carpe diem — seize the day!
