"Events in the past may be roughly divided into those which probably never happened and those which do not matter."
William Ralph Inge
6 June 1860 – 26 February 1954
Inge was an English author, Anglican priest, and professor of divinity at Cambridge.
That's a bit gloomy of a forecast.
But when you think about things in life that overpower us at times......much of it doesn't matter in the end. Even though it might have really happened. It wasn't worth anything.
I don't want to live my life like clothes on the laundry line blowing in the breeze.......flung about. Wet and trying to become dry.I want my life to COUNT for something.....
In the end.....we will all give an account for our lives. So why waste time?
I say....let's get on with it.
ALL of these tiny moments in our lives add up......to one big ending one day.
Life is short.
Say a kind word
Tell someone you love them.
Bake someone some cookies.
Smile at someone you don't know today.
Touch a life.
It really doesn't cost anything....just a few of your "moments."
You just may be pulling that person you reach out to...off the edge of a cliff.
You never know.
