Mindful Monday #12 – Seize the Day

Mindful-Monday-2Today’s Mindful Monday topic popped up Wednesday night while I talked to a girl friend.  I continued to think about the topic for the duration of the week.  It wasn’t until Sunday, that it became very clear that the topic of time really needs to be addressed since it came up organically several times this week.  I have friends in my life, that are going through life transitions, like me.  Other friends are in places where a transition or change is calling their name, or has called their name for a long time.  Yet, they have resisted the call for as long as five years to over 16 years.  We don’t live in a video game.  We can’t press pause when life get’s too hard, when someone dies, when we need to rest or when we are afraid.  But, many of us do.  Life continues to move forward always.  And it will move forward with or without you.  If you are in the group that resist change, how long has life been going on with you on sidelines?

We say we waste time, but that is impossible.  We waste ourselves.” – Alice Bloch
