Five Minute Friday - Waste

This post is part of the weekly Five Minute Friday link-up!

What a shame it would be to waste my life on things that do not matter at all. I can waste time regretting the past, placing blame on others who have hurt me in the past, and wishing things would have been different in some way. I can waste time looking ahead and worrying about what could happen, or about what may not happen that I want to happen. But neither option will do me or anyone around me any good at all. I can't change the past and I can't predict what will happen in the future.

What I can do is live this day, this moment to the best of my ability. I can take the time to truly see and hear each person around me and give them my best, allow God's love to flow through me to them. I can take the time to appreciate the blessings I am given now - the blue sky, the child's laughter, learning something new, a hug from my husband. Now is all I have and I don't want to waste one precious moment I have been given.
