Time is like a river

Time is like a river you cannot touch the same water twice because the flow that has passed will never pass again enjoy every moment of your life

I find it hard to enjoy every moment as negative future and past thoughts get in the way and time passing scares me to think of it, but I want to try to cherish each moment right now...my precious son is cutting out a rainbow and I want to be present for this and he won’t be six forever. I was suffering when I woke this morning but now I am cherishing this time so the suffering is a bit less, more manageable.

I hope you all are managing alright today. I wish you the very best.

Yeah true. Lets us step back and breathe. I am glad you are using mindfulness. I used to love to be mindful by meditating for about an hour every week then I started doing a few very short ones a day now I rarely practice. I wonder how I can start enjoying it again. Maybe I can stay in the present and stay sane without an actual meditation.

Nice..I read a Buddhist quote, it says, everyday you are born again.. its what you do today that matters the most..time is unforgiving..and goes so fast..we got to be on top of things... God bless you and your family..
