Stop rushing time

Benjamin Franklin said, “Dost thou love life, then do not squander time, for that’s the stuff life is made of. ”

Tom Wolfe said, “We are always acting on what has just finished happening. It happened at least 1/30th of a second ago. We think we’re in the present, but we aren’t. The present we know is only a movie of the past.

We’re always wanting to rush away from the present to the future.

Yet we look back at the past and we let our memory wander. We treasure the past with our vivid memories, pictures, videos and books.

Yet we want to rush away from the present, the point in time where we actually make these memories. The only point in time where we can actually change our future memories.

The future arrives like clockwork every moment, every minute, hour, day, week, month.

Spend time in the present and enjoy each moment before it slips away into the past.

Don’t wish for the future to come sooner.

Furthermore you never know when the future will stop coming altogether.

Hope that your present is the best present you have ever lived and not that the future will be better.

Your now, as short as it may be, will always be the best it can possibly be and if the future arrives, your memories will be true treasures.
