One word prompt.
Let’s do this before I change my mind.
This week’s word: Present
The air around me feels still. The sounds are all around yet here I am in this moment closing it out. All of it. Or pretending. Because the thing is, I need this. Yes, it’s for me. And I even feel selfish, but the moment is mine. Even with everything going on around me. I’m taking it. This moment. This is my present. It’s not where I was. It’s not where I want to be. It’s just the now. Because that’s all I’ve got. And really, it can be taken from me at any moment. Any single moment.
And that terrifies me.
The thought of the present ending. The thought of losing out, losing it, losing control. Maybe if I clutch a little tighter it will be mine and I can stay here in this moment. But there are no guarantees. Maybe losing it is not even the scariest part.
Maybe missing it is.
The thought that I would be to wrapped up in the was or the will be for me to know what is.
I can’t afford to miss it.
I can’t bear the thought.
The price is too high.
If I lose the present, does the yesterday or tomorrow really matter?
Now it’s your turn! Head on over to Lisa-Jo Baker’s blog and give it a try. Do it for you. And while you’re there make sure to encourage someone else.
Enjoy the dance!
