Crisp cool evenings in early August… darkness coming noticeably earlier each day… these are just chilly reminders that nothing lasts forever. And so often we need reminders such as this. What we love will soon be gone so enjoy it while we can. What we don’t love so much will soon be gone so don’t worry…love it for the gifts it brings…for bringing contrast and depth into your life. Everything comes into our lives just to pass through. All moments become moments of beauty when we realize that they won’t last.
As we squeeze the last few drops of enjoyment out of each warm evening that just short weeks ago had us living as though they’d never end, we see that all of life is a gift to us.
Everything that comes into our lives has a message for us that says, “Live now, live now!”
Spice for this week: Get out and live your life!! Enjoy the warm evenings, enjoy the cold days, sit on your patio, go for walks, spend time with trees, lay on the grass, get up and watch the sunrise for a sunrise meditation, never miss a sunset.
