The Gift of Now

12 Aug




“We can smile, breathe, walk, and eat our meals in a way that allows us to be in touch with

the abundance of happiness that is available. We are very good at preparing to live, but not

very good at living. We know how to sacrifice ten years for a diploma and we are willing to

work very hard to get a job, a car, a house, and so on. But we have difficulty remembering

that we are alive in the present moment, the only moment there is for us to be alive.”

– Thich Nhat Hanh
