From the book Equilibrium: 31 Ways to Stay Balanced on Life’s Uneven Surfaces.

Mark the place. Take a picture. Remember the exact time. Give “now” a name.

The song informed me years ago that I would never pass this way again. I heard it and sang it, but did I receive it?

Mama tried to convince me how every day of life is short and valuable, but did I believe it? Now I am still working to recall and apply those realities.

So, today, right now, let us choose to remember this is the only moment we will be at this very place at this exact time.

There is value here. You will never be here again.

Let that statement rewire your perspective and renew your commitment.

Now is important to you.

You are important now.
