“For just one second, look at your life and see how perfect it is. Stop looking for the next secret door that is going to lead you to your real life. Stop waiting. This is it: there’s nothing else. It’s here, and you’d better decide to enjoy it or you’re going to be miserable wherever you go, for the rest of your life, forever.”
― Lev Grossman
* I apologize for the unintended hiatus in my regular writing schedule this past week. There were technical difficulties on my blog.

Oh, wow. Yes. xox
Lovely sentiment and such a peaceful scene. Thank you for this meditation.
My pleasure, Barb. Glad it resonated.
This is a good one. (Well, all the quotes you post are good ones, actually!) And I needed it especially this morning. Thank you.
I read this quote a few times and I love how it pushed me to the present moment and the goodness in my life. xo
And sorry about the technical difficulties! That drives me crazy.
Thanks, Tamara. Yes, techie difficulties are so frustrating, but I am hoping they are behind me now!
Wow. I wish I could say I’d never need to read this but, in truth, it’s brilliant and so spot-on and I think I’ll tape it to my computer desk.
After your suggestion, Sarah, I decided to do the same. I’ve printed and posted it on the cork board near my desk.
This is it. Now. The present moment. There’s really nothing else to focus on. Wise words. Thanks for sharing that quote, Rudri. I needed the reminder.
Glad it resonated with you, Joy. xo
This is SUCH a wonderful quote. I would say that an apology is unnecessary, but I feel the need to apologize too – for dropping off so completely. I’m so glad to be catching up on your writing!
No apologies necessary, Dakota. I understand how life happens. xo
