I’ve noticed that when you take care of the moments, the moments take care of your life.
So simple to understand yet so challenging to accomplish.
My moments are often roughed up by distractions, battered by criticism and diminished by worry. They lose value through inattention and carelessness.
There are times I understand I’m not taking care of the moments but find it almost impossible to redirect my attention. Life is full of things that easily shift our attention to doing anything but care taking the moments.
It is about focus. Rational focus. Not an obsessive or panicked attention, but a thoughtful awareness of how we are spending the moments of each day.
The best assurance for a day (or life) well spent is to caretake the moments.
