Diving into today and living every moment

“Live now … procrastinate later.” … Robert Holden

My mom used to say: “Into every life a little rain must fall.”  And I suppose that, that is fine if you happen to be carrying your Life-umbrella with you.  I don’t know about you but in my life I haven’t always been so well prepared.  I think that has something to do with the pairing of the quantity of Procrastination genes with which I seem to have been blessed and the HUGE Rosy coloured glasses that Perky Polly & I are so fond of.

 Mom was a great one for the quick one-liners … a little something to sum up almost any circumstance.  What she didn’t mention was that the “little rain” could become a deluge that would flood my internal landscape … wash away all of my favourite landmarks and road-signs … leave my galoshes full of water … my umbrella sagging … and my hair all wet and yucky.  Thanks mom.  Fortunately my good friend Life has a steady supply of life-rafts in varying colours and sizes available at a moment’s notice.  Whew!

The aforementioned deluges have taught me that Robert Holden is correct … today is for living … it’s not for thinking about living … it’s not for planning on living … it’s for actually getting-out-there-and-leaping-into-the-fray living!  I don’t have the same long view that Capital “L” Life has … and as such I don’t always see the storms on the horizon … if I did I’d be way better prepared!  So  … I have learned that if I put off until tomorrow what brings me joy and allows Sunshine Sue to shine and Perky Polly to “perk” then I may be losing opportunities that will not come my way again for a long … long … time: as Robert Holden said: “Live today … procrastinate later.”  On that note the girls and I are off to uncover yet another adventure … dive into life … have fun … and dance with Life.

Arinaste Everyone (from my heart to your heart)
