a dare to live fully right where you are

Why do we rush through our days like we're running from something? Or maybe we feel we're running to something. Maybe we feel we can somehow make time move quicker, to reach our dreams. But, then we lose the beauty of the moment we're in. We don't recognize what we have right now to be precious.

So precious.

So we wish our days away. Wishing we were someplace else. Imagining we'd be truly happy if only we had this, if only we lived there. And then we miss what we have and where we are. 

What about the joy to be had now? What about the life to be lived now?

Ann Voskamp's book, "One Thousand Gifts," came out today. Everyone should read it, seriously.
