When I stop and think of how much of our lives we spend ‘waiting’ ‘anticipating’ and ‘enduring’ until….. it hit home just how much weight we carry because of this. The scales are tipped heavily toward the ‘until’ rather than the ‘now’.
Until that holiday
Until the sales
Until you can afford it
Until you see them again
Until the diet is over
Until the kids go back to school (or are off school)
Until you retire
Until, until, until……
Isn’t it just as important to make the in-between time just as delightful?
The in-between times are the times we get to pursue or own interests, and enjoy the little things – cherish the days, the weeks; live in the moment.
If we don’t do this, life becomes one big never ending waiting game, which is not always a happy of fulfilling state of mind – waiting in hope of something that’s always in the future, out of grasp and in some cases, may not even happen.
Seize life, seize experiences, nurture small joys and make every moment count!

You too 🔆😊
So true! I’m concentrating more and more on being mindful and more present.
Good stuff, I’m with you on that!

Carpe Diem, I agree.
Great post Cherryl. We need to be reminded sometimes.💞
So true 💛
I am a ‘here and now’ type of person so I wholeheartedly agree with this post. 🙂
This is such an important message. We plan, prepare for and eagerly anticipate so much in the future. We give up so much of the our “now” for “then”. And often, it doesn’t work out. All of a sudden, instead of period of austerity followed by a glorious, so-worth-it payoff, it’s been a waste of chances, opportunities and time. Don’t limit yourself to that one thing. Take what you get, push nothing away, look forward to tomorrow, live to the fullest today.
Love that – I couldn’t agree more.
Savor the moment. No matter what it is.
