This magnet is on my fridge door and I see it multiple times a day. Although I’m sure there are many more profound quotes out there, this one speaks loudly to me.
I have several people who are close to me that are coping with very serious health problems, any of which could become life threatening very quickly. They have all learned to live in the present, enjoying as much of each day as they possibly can and nurturing relationships with those they love and care about. What more could one ask?
I have no patience with people who feel they need to live a life of constant denial of pleasure and satisfaction.
So I agree! Life IS short and if it pleases you, by all means, eat dessert first!
