Are Your Moments for Rent?


My quote for today is by Jerry Spinelli,  Childrens’ author B.1941)

“Live today. Not yesterday. Not tomorrow.  Just today.  Inhabit your moments.  Don’t rent them out to tomorrow.”

I guess this means not giving our moments over to what happened in our past or what will happen in our future.  Can you imagine the luxury of saving your precious moments for this day only?  Many people are completely consumed with the future, and yet, it is how you live today that creates your future! Perhaps the Zen practice of mindfulness would help or do you have another story to tell?

Would you interpret ” moments” as meaning thoughts in this quote?
