It is really easy to fall into the trap of believing that the way things are right now, what we are doing, who our friends are, what we remember, and what we think is important will not change that much. But life is more like a river than a lake, and those things are floating past us even as we stand in the middle of them. Pause for a few moments and absorb the wonderful things surrounding you in your life. Think about their impact and why they make you happy. Enjoy those moments and cherish those memories. You will be happier about your life today and the life you have lived.
