To wait for someone else, or to expect someone else to make my life richer, or fuller, or more satisfying, puts me in a constant state of suspension; and I miss all those moments that pass. They never come back to be experienced again. —Kathleen Tierney Crilly—
The steps we are taking today will never again be taken in exactly the same way. The thoughts we are thinking are fresh, never to be repeated. All that these moments offer will never pass our way again. We each have to grab our own happiness, create our own richness through experiences. We may share what we capture with loved ones,
but like us, they too must search their own avenues for the satisfaction that lasts. We can neither give happiness to another, like a gift, nor expect it in return. The fullness of life we all long for is the natural by-product of living every moment as fully as possible. Our higher power will never direct us into waters too deep. When we have willingly turned our lives and our wills over, we’ll find an abundance of the rich, the full, the satisfying. Faith in God answers all questions, solves all problems. I will cherish every moment today. Each one is special and will not visit me again.
