“Forever has no meaning when you’re living in the moment.”
― Ellen Hopkins, Impulse
Living in the moment. That is a phrase that will be uttered by several people over the years to come. No matter if you’re young or old or even middle-aged… we all should live life to the fullest.
Forever. That’s the term that many stories use to give their readers a glowing satisfaction of their favorite characters living happily ever after. Remember the ending of Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight Saga ended on the note of Bella and Edward love lasting forever. Of course when it comes to vampires forever is a likely term that is used because vampires have immortality and can live for an eternity.
As for ourselves forever can be in the memory that we’ve made while we’re living in the moment. But those memories cannot be made if we don’t go out and make them.
Pretty much this quote means that life isn’t endless and that we should cherish each and every waking moment that we have. To go out and be daring. To face fear and conquer what holds us back so that we can make an everlasting moment in our minds (and perhaps even the next generation.)
Take that chance that you’ve been hesitant in taking… you never know where it will lead you… it will certainly create some memorable moments for you. Learn a new hobby or skill. Take up singing or learn to play an instrument. We’re never too old to try new things.
The main point is that we need to keep doing things and to forget our worries. Live in the moment. Enjoy today with your friends and family. Life is too short to keep worrying about stuff you can’t fix.
Instead find something that you can do and make a difference. We’re all here on Earth for a limited time, unless you’re a vampire, so get out there and do something great.
