Sterling, handsome young man, caught in a suit. Would we think this was the norm… we could, he carries it so well. Confident, charming, years from now, this will be what was in 2016 on the day that picture was taken, it will not reflect anything else, but that moment in time. We are often reminded of what was back in … pick a year, any year… What we discover is, that what was back then, although still part of our “make up” is in no way where we are in the “now”
Will this young man remember the day he was off to play golf and was caught in the moment. Maybe. Life is filled with so many wonderful adventures, and we get to live each and every one. I am often asked if I remember something that happened some many years ago. My honest answer, is probably not. If the person is able to give me enough information, I might catch a glimpse of what that person is remembering, however often my memory is not the same as theirs.
People come together for a reason, strangers meet and become friends, or not.. But the encounter is one that often leaves a lasting impression, sometimes, it is felt right away, and other times not till sometime yet to come. When you live in the NOW (present) you are living in the moment, and that moment will be with you forever. Even if you are lost in thoughts of the past, what is happening to you in the present, is still happening, you simply are missing the moment, and that is too bad, why, because you can never get it back.
Like the exhilaration of fireworks, they happen, then they are gone. It is our decision whether or not we go forward, or try to hold on to the past. Whether you want it to or not, life will continue to flow in and around you. One season will roll into the next, enjoy the changes, you will blossom and with each season, your blooms will change.
