“While days are easy to measure, moments are not. But rather than waiting for moments to come floating along, we need to get about the business of creating them. I have some suggestions. Take a day off from work, surprise your kids, and goof off the entire day. Drop by your wife’s place of employment unannounced and tell her how much she means to you. Pick up the phone and call that person you have been meaning to connect with but were too busy to get it done. Sit and watch the sunset or the moonrise. Walk on the lawn early in the morning when the dew still clings to the grass. Turn off all your electronic devices for three hours and take a nap. None of these things will add any years to your life, but they will, without question, add life to your years. And that is the only thing you can control – in this moment.”
John St. Augustine, in “Living an Uncommon Life”
