Their birth. Their first crawl. Their first walk. Their first day of school. Their first tooth was lost.
The moments become memories in a blink of an eye. It happens so fast we don’t really understand what is going on when it’s happening. We take it for granted thinking it’ll always be this way.
In the back of our minds, we know it doesn’t last.
But that isn’t just for our kids growing up.
That’s for the trip we want to take but are “waiting until retirement” to go on it.
That’s for the girl we want to ask out but are too embarrassed because her friends are around.
That’s for the business we want to start but are scared of what our friends might think.
We don’t know when we are going to get this moment again, if ever. We think that life is so long and that we have it so planned out. If we are being real with ourselves, we know we don’t have the slightest idea what tomorrow will bring.
Why isn’t today good enough to try something? Why can’t today be that day we take a chance on ourselves and see what we have inside? Why can’t today be the day we decide to live just for today and forget about tomorrow?
Because eventually today will be gone, and so will tomorrow, and then the next day.
And if we don’t stop and think about what’s happening, we might just miss it going by.
