We honor life by being present for it. Kiss the joy as it flies.

We all know that time flies when you’re having fun. What would be the value of slowing things down to kiss and hug these moments longer and more fully?

To only kiss the joy as it flies is not possible without also honoring the sad and difficult times. If we always wish to sidestep the bad times, we unfortunately miss the good ones.


Consider exploring Susan Cain’s book, Bittersweet to expand your capacity to honor and be more fully present to your life.
