Bit of Happy #86: Like A Falling Star

25 Jan

“Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in eternity. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand and melting like a snowflake. Let us use it before it is too late.”
-Marie Beynon Ray

Magical like a sparkling star, delicate like a melting snowflake – our hopes and dreams. They are everything we want to do. Everything that we hope and wish for. Everything we want to accomplish. And it’s the very possibility of all of those things coming true that we find incessantly alluring. The motivation for getting up each morning. The reason for living.

Awareness of time, of opportunity, of all the things we need to accomplish to feel complete… that is most important in seeking our ultimate happiness. This quote recognizes the precedence of time. Of living in the moment. Of not taking one second for granted. Because the true reality of it all is that we never really know when this moment will be our last. And with the weight of that realization, we are motivated to learn how to take each moment and cherish it. To live to our fullest potential. Because like the delicacy of a snowflake and the resilience of a falling star… is time. Is our hopes. Is our dreams. And if we don’t take each moment and spend it in the best way we can with what we are given, we may very well be too late.
