I wolfed down 4 huge slices of mozzarella-rich pizza just now. I love how mozzarella feels like sticky, gooey bubble gum in my mouth.
It’s life’s simple pleasures which help us realize that we should live in the moment. The sheer bliss of pizza between my teeth made me cherish the moment for what it was…yummy and cheesy. For one brief moment, I let go of all my worries. I stopped thinking of the mistakes I made earlier today, and abandoned all my worries about tomorrow’s things to do.
If you think about it, all we really have is the here and now. Yesterday has already passed, so there’s nothing more we can do about it. Tomorrow has yet to happen, so it’s also an exercise in futility to keep thinking about it. If we let the present moment pass, it’ll be gone forever. So we should just make the most of NOW, because that’s all we’ve got.
Maybe I should have pizza more often…
