With This Breath….

“Some butterflies live only for one day. Some cacti bloom only for a few hours at night. And this is what makes them so exquisite. A moment of sunshine on your face, breakfast with a loved one, a child’s smile. This moment will never happen again. This breath I am taking is precious because it exists in me only for an instant. If we spend much of our time worrying about what the future will bring and whether we will leave a legacy fitting to our inflated sense of self, we will fail to notice the precious moments of our days.”
