At 6:30 tonight (yesterday, November 14, 2016) I began my supermoon watch with my first “walk and awe” of the evening. It was nothing short of awesome. The supermoon was so big, and bold, and brilliant in the already-black sky at that time that I thought it was at least midnight. Watching was irresistible.

Filling Our Time with What Matters Most

We can fill our time and our lives with a lot of things. From noise to meaning and everything in between.

But we only have so much capacity, so much time. And although life can be very forgiving, time is not. The sand in the hourglass of life never takes a holiday and the amount of sand that we have left at any given moment is never within our view.

As Keith Urban sings, “days go by.” Games are played. Seasons change. Relationships begin and end. Dreams and memories both fade and are made anew. People die. And the hands on the clock never stop moving clockwise.

So we must fill our days and nights the best we can by doing what matters most. To us. Individually.

Filling ourselves full of that which most satisfies our minds, our hearts, and our spirits. Immersing ourselves in and with the people, activities, and experiences that we most enjoy. Living on purpose.

Filling our time with what matters most. While we still have time to fill.

Leave no doubt,
