While Porn and the effects that Porn has in and on our lives directly and indirectly is a topic that I do want to take the time to write about, tonight’s post will not be it.
I am quite Fortunately pressed for time 🙂
And while I am pressed for time, that does not excuse me from this commitment that I have undertaken with you and with myself!
My quick blurb will undertake a theme that is recurring and I have yet to learn from. Allow me to rephrase that, it is a theme that we have yet to learn from.
Now, I can say this simply owed to the INFINITE quotes on the subject:
Forever is composed of nows. ~Emily Dickinson
Not the power to remember, but its very opposite, the power to forget, is a necessary condition for our existence. ~Sholem Asch, The Nazarene, 1939
We are always getting ready to live but never living. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
When I am anxious it is because I am living in the future. When I am depressed it is because I am living in the past. ~Author Unknown
I never think of the future. It comes soon enough. ~Albert Einstein
One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon – instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today. ~Dale Carnegie
God made the world round so we would never be able to see too far down the road. ~Isak Dinesen
If you are still talking about what you did yesterday, you haven’t done much today.
The author of the above quote is Anonymous, but I would like to add to it the following:
Likewise, if you are talking about what you will do tomorrow, you are not doing much today.
So you see, based on this TINY sampling of some of my favorite “carpe diem” quotes, we all need to learn to enjoy, revel, delight, thrive, and take pleasure in the now! Who we are with! Where we are! What we are doing!
It sounds so simple, so logical. And yet, it is so difficult to do, is it not?
We can see when others are not savoring the now, not rejoicing in our or others’ company!
But, why is it so difficult for us to see when we are the ones wallowing in the past or the future? In the what could be, what will be?
Answer me that!
