If Only…

Standard

If my mind were as eager – once I’ve given up on rest and gotten out of bed to get some work done – as it was when busily working to keep me from sleep…

If my body was still as strong and capable as the tasks I set for it…

If I could take as much pleasure in the experiences of the present as I do in the memories of past experiences…

If only I could appreciate what I have when it’s here, and work when I have to, play when I can and sleep when it’s time to rest, I would have a much easier time, in this life.
