When You Arrive

We never put time aside for what’s truly worth it.  We work as hard as possible, missing all the little things life gives us.  We put off seeing loved ones, who want nothing more than to see us, because we need time to “wind down” after a long week.  We have no patience.   We want everything right here, right now.

But then, we arrive.

We arrive before it’s too late to see a dying relative in the hospital.  We see them off to the other side, whatever, and wherever that may be.  We inventory our lives, realizing what matters, and what doesn’t.

We arrive at conclusions.  Is there more? Is this it?

We arrive in this world unbeknownst to us that we can make it anything we want it to be.

Life is like an egg timer, just waiting to expire.  Gloomy? Perhaps.

When we take the time to accept everything that is around us, only then have we arrived.
