Many times I've given as an excuse for doing something (usually wild and crazy) the excuse that life is too short to let the opportunity pass us by. Looking back on it, life can certainly seem short; with little time to waste.
At other times, when we look at what's to come in our lives with great expectation, life seems to slow to a crawl.
Far too often I forget to enjoy each moment of life in and of itself; to stop worrying about what will and won't be possible in the future or what I've done in the past. These are difficult habits to break and I often need constant reminding.
For those of you that are like me and are always looking at the frontiers of your lives I write this as another reminder. Stop for a minute, take a look around, and appreciate your life for where you're at right now.
