Time goes by so quickly that you sometimes can't remember where you've been. It's not until you stop, that you realize how far you've traveled. Life does not wait for anyone, including yourself. It moves much too quickly for us all. But there are important moments that need to be savored a little longer than most. But how do you make these special times last? It's by experiencing the moment with your mind, body, and soul. Acknowledging how special your life is at this time. Whether you remember this exact moment is not important for it has been imprinted within your spirit. So even if you can't remember all the details, you'll never forget the emotions that you've experienced. Live in the present, for within seconds it becomes part of your past. There is value where you are at this exact moment.

We are blessed with life's miracles... 

(I have a day or so before my trip ends, but instead of enjoying the moments I have left, I'm already thinking about work. I know that it'll wait until I get back, but my mind drifts to what I have to do. Living in the present has always been challenging for me. It's part of a control thing. It's easier to live in the past and plan for the future. It's not until I see something so special that I am truly present in the moment. If not, I'm going to miss a lot of life's miracles.)
