My Grandfather, who was a WWII Vet, had this saying, “Time Don’t Wait For No One” .  Although it drove me nuts, I knew what he meant. It was typically announced when I was either putting something off or taking too long to get ready. Still it always made me pause and think that’s one crazy ass statement. As I get older some how it resonates.  The following is a sweet perspective on just that.

“Who has never killed an hour? Not casually or without thought, but carefully: a premeditated murder of minutes. The violence comes from a combination of giving up, not caring, and a resignation that getting past it is all you can hope to accomplish. So you kill the hour. You do not work, you do not read, you do not daydream. If you sleep it is not because you need to sleep. And when at last it is over, there is no evidence: no weapon, no blood, and no body. The only clue might be the shadows beneath your eyes or a terribly thin line near the corner of your mouth indicating something has been suffered, that in the privacy of your life you have lost something and the loss is too empty to share.”
— Mark Z. Danielewski (House of Leaves)

Today May Be the Best Day You Have

Life is not about money, fame , big houses, etc…

The riches of life are apparent every day.

When you wake up in the morning, go outside, and watch the sun rise, enjoy the fresh air, adore your spouse in the morning, spend time with your child as if you will never see them again.

Today may be the best day you have.

There is no promise of tomorrow. Unknown
