“We have a real life of our own.

Yes, we do.

That empty feeling, that sense that everyone except us has a life - an important life, a valuable life, a better life - is a remnant from the past. It is also a self-defeating belief that is inaccurate.

We are real. So is our life. Jump into it, and we’ll see.

Today, I will live my life and treasure it as mine.” 

 -Melody Beattie

I read this today and it went right into my heart.  I only have today.  I don’t know about tomorrow.  The grass may be greener somewhere else, but I am here.  What I do today matters.  I make a difference. That’s powerful!  It’s good to be living in the moment.
