“We are very good at preparing to live, but not very good at living. We know how to sacrifice ten years for a diploma, and we are willing to work very hard to get a job, a car, a house, and so on. But we have difficulty remembering that we are alive in the present moment, the only moment there is for us to be alive.”

― Thích Nhất Hạnh

    Excellent post for this prompt Zee! This is a lesson we all should try to learn and practice, and try not to let the noise of our modern life (social media, TV, even blogging!) keep us from living in the now. I know I am not very good at this practice, but I have been trying, I guess that’s all one can do.

    Very good, Zee! Yes, life is what happens while we’re busy making plans. I see so many co-workers and parents who are dying to have moments in life pass, and they don’t realize that these moments ARE life.
