Tis the mantra of the day, or so it seems to me, that the goal is to live one day at a time and live it fully. Notice the day, experience each moment, “be” in the present. This doesn’t fall on deaf ears. I know this, I believe this, it doesn’t mean I always do this. I make that effort and am often successful but if I tie these comments to my previous post it would be evident the moments in time are lived but memory evidence is often lost.
“A retentive memory may be a good thing, but the ability to forget is the true token of greatness.”
I enjoy my life, seems to me that is the goal, remembering every detail may be incidental. I look forward to many more years of the same happiness, and will strive for more. I have a family who loves me, and whom I love, friends that remain so whether I see them once a year or daily, and the prospect for more “life” than seems fair sometimes.
I am on the cusp now of the next stage in my life, retirement. It will (I hope) provide me with more enjoyment and experiences to relish, moments to live. In the meantime, today, live.
