...days are long, but the years are short...

“There’s a saying that the days are long, but the years are short. An hour, especially if you’re bored, can seem endless. Yet as the seconds tick by, they are gone forever. And we don’t know what the future holds, including perhaps an accident or illness around the corner. As Stephen Levine has pointed out, each of us will come to a day when there is just one year to live and not know when that line has been crossed.

Life is fragile, fleeting, and precious. It’s not morbid to recognize this. Rather, it’s a way to celebrate the days we do have, and commit to making the best of them."

- Rick Hanson, Ph.D. (Resilient)
