One of my friend’s motto is “We should celebrate our life”. I think so. We can only exist now and this life is just once. We like to get distracted and think about all kinds of things that don’t matter. By celebrating I don’t mean like party; I mean to fully exist in the moment, especially with someone important in our lives.
Focus on now. But how can we when there’s so much noise and advertisements and all kinds of things that try to take our attention away from this very now.
I think answer is in imagination. We should never be afraid to dream, and imagine more. Imagine how we could make now and today, different, even just somehow; not tomorrow.
As imagination opens the doors to empathy, so it does to the present moment.
I try to do one unusual and special thing everyday, just to celebrate the fact that I am alive now. Today it’s a flower.
