It's true


Do you wake up in the mornings looking forward to the day?
Do you always follow the same routine or do you find time to be spontaneous?
Do you know what you're going to be doing at the weekend?
Do you find that your life is passing you by without your really taking part in it?
Is there anything you'd rather be doing?
We are living at a time when everything is moving very fast.
Transport, technology, time, itself.
We can cross the world in a few hours, wa can communicate with friends on the
side of the planet in a matter of seconds and we can wake up and suddenly it's Friday again!
We're all busy making the money, working hard, saving up for next holiday,
for a rainy day, for our retirement, but how many of us actually enjoy the now?
We are encouraged to regret the past and dream about a better future.
We use endless conditionals to create the vision of perfection: if I lose a few kilos,
I'll change my image. If I stop smoking, I'll be able to save lots of money.
If I meet the (wo)man of my dreams, I'll be happy ,,,,,and on it goes.
But the reality is that we only have 'now'. After all, we don't know what will happen
tomorrow so we need to enjoy today. As the saying goes 'you only live once' ,,,,, or do you?
