Do you ever think how much of your life is spent "getting ready" for the next thing? Your morning is all about getting ready for your day. Your day is all about getting things ready for the future (whether you teach, work in a business, are a doctor, ect). Working out is all about being healthy to live longer or have a better future. Your evening is all about getting ready for the next morning. How much of our lives are actual spent living in the moment? I've been thinking about this a lot lately and find it interesting how much everything is about getting ready or prepared for the next step. Education is about getting ready for your future, your job is about making money for your future so you can buy thing you'll need. Heck, even kids are about providing more people for our future. And most of their lives with parents is about preparing them for their future too.
How much of life is about living in the moment?
Or do I think too much about what's ahead and miss the point?
Good thoughts to ponder.
