The little charms that adorn the day ...

Best quote ever to start the weekend:

The best reason to take your time is that this time is the only time you'll ever have. You must take it or it will be taken from you. It is telling that the phrase 'taking your time' is synonymous with slowing down. If we want to live fully, we do best to slow down. I don't suggest we turn back the clock, trying to retrieve a bygone era when life was slower. We couldn't, even if we wanted to. But I don't believe we should want to. We should revel in our electronically supercharged, unbounded world. But, to make the most out of this new world, to avoid feeling overbooked, overstretched, and about to snap, to make modern life become better than life has ever been, a person must learn how to do what matters most first. Otherwise, you will bulldoze over life's best moments. You won't notice the little charms that adorn each day, nor will you ever transform the mundane into the extraordinary.

(Excerpt from Crazybusy, by Edward M. Hallowell, MD)

May you ... do what matters most first.

May you ... refuse to bulldoze over life's best moments.

May you ... notice all the little charms that adorn this day.

May you ... by being present and slowing down a bit, watch the mundane get transformed into the ordinary!

AMEN.
