At the beginning we’re often excited.
At the end, we’re trying to figure out where the time went.
But what about the middle? It is so often ignored.
We take it for granted.
We become numb.
We don’t appreciate it because we believe there will always be more time.
Until the day comes and our time is up.
Maybe it’s the idea of the end of your career that you love so much.
Maybe it’s your child moving out and launching into their next chapter.
Maybe it’s the friend moving away.
I’m asking you to enjoy the middle. Sure enough, the end will be here and you will wonder where all that time went, and likely regretting not appreciating what you had because you knew there was “always more time.”
All things come to an end.
All things move on to the next thing.
Be here now. Appreciate the now. And enjoy the middle.
