Life evolves. There is life and there is death. With birth comes excitement, hopefulness, gratefulness and expectantancy. Life is so full of promise we tell ourselves. We forget all our disappointments and look forward to a wonderful future. We make plans and we stand back and look at the life we created, the life we truly believe we are deserving of.
Life is full of surprises, and in the midst of our triumph like an erupting volcano all of our dreams go to ashes. We go from being healthy to being sick, and eventually succumbing to death. We lie in our bed and ask “why me, what have I done.” You did nothing, you are part of the evolution of life. We look back and we wonder why we made the choices we made and had we not made those choices, we wonder what the results would have been.
Life does not often give us the opportunity to undo the past. The choices we make now are what determines the future results in our lives. We have to honour the present moment and live as though it is all we have and it is. There are no guarantees, we just have to be present in our lives in every moment. This is all that is given to us. We can either use it for our greater good or squander it. The choice is ours to make.
