January 10: “Until it is Carved in Stone”

heavenonearth“It’s only when we truly know and understand that we have a limited time on earth – and that we have no way of knowing when our time is up – that we will begin to live each day to the fullest, as if it was the only one we had.”  Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

Are you living each day as if it could be your last?  So many of us take our time here on earth for granted, as if we have an unlimited supply of tomorrow’s, as if what we do today does not really matter.

How much I would hate to be Emily in Our Town, to find that my time on earth has ended and that I have not appreciated and taken advantage of all that I could have done and experienced, if only I had not put off until tomorrow what I could have done today!

“…our heart’s desire is possible every day if we recognize what it is that makes us happy.”  Sarah Ban Breathnach

If we focus on the list we made of what truly makes us happy – the deep down place of contentment in our soul – then we will know what our priorities should be for each and every day.

Are you rising every morning with gratitude for another day to experience all that our earth journey has to offer us?  What rituals have you developed to ensure that you are following the path that keeps you on your intended journey?  Will you share them with us?
