Enjoy the Present #39

Today’s quote means a lot to me because I often find myself just going through the motions and not appreciating the now.  I have gotten a lot better at it but sometimes I lose focus of where I am and the journey that has led me to this point.  I find it interesting that when we are young, we wish to be old, but when we are old, we wish to be young.  

Enjoy the Journey and take nothing for granted!  Dalai Llama says it best:

Dalai Llama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, said: “ Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”
