What I Learned from 28 to 29

By Adam Mundorf

Wow, today I am 29 years old.  You don't get unlimited days you know?  The days are long but the years are short and are rapidly lost to the sands of time.  As soon as a baby is conceived the hour glass is turned over and sand begins to pour.  We don't know how much sand we have, the quality of the grain or the size of the glass but we can decide to take advantage of every grain.  Never allowing a grain to fall without appreciating the moment to its fullest extent.  The next grain is never guaranteed and the flow could end at any moment.  Brain aneurysm, car accident, murder, cancer or major heart attack, shit happens.

So, long story short, the biggest lesson I learned was to embrace the present, forget the past and be grateful for the ability to have a future.  It's easy to get caught up in the everyday minutia of bullshit but I implore everyone reading this blog....all 3,716 of you as of this writing, to take a moment to embrace the present.  Just take a moment and pay attention to every little detail of the room or place you're in.  The noises, the smells, the temperature and the objects.  This is the last moment of this day, this hour, this minute and this second that will exist.  Enjoy it.
