Loving the Imperfect Moment

You will never find your life perfect until you accept its intrinsic imperfection and love it anyway. Life may give you everything you want – but it won’t be all at the same time. There was good and bad in the past as there are different aspects of the present that you like or don’t like. You will have a different set of cards in your hands tomorrow.

One guarantee in life is change. Another is death.

And the only time you are alive and can be happy is the present.

Don’t waste more than a moment of the precious present worrying about what you will lose. Live today or tomorrow you will ask yourself, “Why did I waste my time worrying instead of appreciating what I had?”

Between nostalgia for a golden past and anticipation for a better future lies the fulsome present – the realized dreams of yesterday and the memories of tomorrow.

Love and appreciate the special people in your life today. They will be gone tomorrow, your relationships will change, the rose will wither, and the sun will set. Make the most of each day, and with your intelligent human mind, look at all that is going well for you this day.
