639 more minutes until my alarm goes off..
Today I read an article that made me think. (Yes, I do that sometimes.)
It was written by a man who, on his relentless quest for efficiency and mastery of time, almost missed a beautiful snippet of life.
That is, the sweetness. The little things. The tiny love notes your children leave for you all over the house. The smiles from strangers. The time when someone backed off and let you merge onto the highway. And you waved to say 'thanks.'
And how fleeting it all is. But how precious.
And, yes, we're all in a hurry. We're all just trying to get it done so we can move on. Get home. Hurry up and get supper on. And brush the kids teeth. And get to bed.
And yet, we have to remember the little things. We have to remember to be here. In the moment. Right now.
I promise to do it if you do.
So, dear readers, tell me about how you take it all in.
How do you cherish all those minutes in the day?
Now, go remind someone else of it...and, maybe, we'll become masters of our time as well.
