“No present like the time…”

No present like the time…

The title is a twist on the old saying  “there is no time like the present”.

What does the new mash up mean?

The line was from the film “The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” where time is a gift to people in their advancing years.  It would be great if you could wrap up time as a gift and just hand it over.  However just seeing that the moment you are in is a gift without any label attached.

One of the characters in the film is given a job at 79 years of age and yet still has to answer to a roll call ever morning to check they are alive.  I love the tenuousness of life and death portrayed with humour.

“Say yes to the universe today not tomorrow…” Susan Jeffers

With age you accept that time is precious and the present is now not something coming up or to be considered.  One of my favourite business books is the “Present” about remembering to be in the moment, and remembering that any “time” or space you are in is always a gift.

“The present is a gift you give yourself only you have the power to discover what it is …?” Spencer Johnson

The trick is never to overthink it but subconsciously use all five senses and make every moment of the present and time the best that they can be.
