One of my greatest foibles is that I always worry about the future. Even in a moment that’s full of joy, I’m so existentially aware of its fleeting nature. One of my life goals is to be able to be in the present, to actually enjoy a moment in its entirety.
Since we’re spending the summer in Seattle, there’s natural beauty everywhere. Here’s my photo of a glistening lake with hand-lettering of this good rule of thumb. I hope it will serve as a reminder to myself and anyone else trying to “seize the moment”.
“Real generosity towards the future lies in giving all to the present.”
