Be in the Moment (or Not)

Sometimes we learn a concept from the opposite direction of what it is not.  Below is an example of not – “Be in the Moment” as quoted by Barbara DeAngelis:

First I was dying to finish high school and start college, and I was dying to finish college and start working, and then I was dying to marry and have kids, and I was dying for the kids to grow older so we can travel, then I was dying to retire, and now I am dying, and suddenly I realize I forgot to live.

Very poignant.
