This Moment is More Precious Than You Think

It won’t be different tomorrow
or after I get that raise
or after I fall in love
or when the weekend comes
or when the spotlight finally
turns my way.

I guess what I am saying
is that today is not a dress rehearsal.
This is it. This is my life.
And nothing can ever happen
outside the present moment
or outside the person I already am.

So stop waiting
for things to be different
and remember that
this moment
and your friends
your family
your time
your attention
are more precious than
you think.
