Life is uncertain. To avoid being present, we focus on the slights of the past or spend our time preparing for the worst version of an unknown future.

Life is uncertain. To avoid being present, we focus on the slights of the past or spend our time preparing for the worst version of an unknown future. But, what if we could open ourselves to the full experience of each day? What if we could truly connect to the people around us and adapt with each experience and encounter? What kind of adventure might life be with a responsive identity and a willingness to enjoy it in its missteps, mistakes and imperfections? Maybe we could find joy, seek presence and learn to thrive on this unpredictable human journey if we all took the simple advice to “Enjoy it, it’ll be over soon.”
