Live ev­ery mo­ment

The Courier-Mail - QWeekend - - NEWS -

If I can be par­tially as pro­duc­tive as Megan Lon­er­a­gan (Or­di­nary Peo­ple, Jan 30-31), I will be very sat­is­fied in­deed. Life is a pre­cious gift which should be used to the full and never wasted. Megan has been given a se­cond chance at life and is mak­ing ev­ery se­cond count. Michael Wouters, Cootharaba Some­times things are “meant to be”; for ex­am­ple, the tragic ac­ci­dent that Megan Lon­er­a­gan suf­fered en­abled medi­cos to dis­cover her heart de­fect, which was then able to be cor­rected fol­low­ing surgery. On the other hand, for the third time in the past week or so, I read about clean­ing up and de­clut­ter­ing us­ing the Marie Kondo method, this time thanks to Mary-Rose MacColl (Wry Side, Jan 30-31). So it must be more than co­in­ci­den­tal. I had bet­ter get started so I can “kiss good­bye” to some things “I no longer love”. Hope it works! Pam McGa­hey, Mount Samson There’s no greater gift you can give your­self (or your chil­dren) than the abil­ity to live in the mo­ment (Wry Side, Jan 30-31). And it goes hand in hand with mind­ful­ness, but mind­ful­ness does not have to come from a book (un­less it’s one that makes your heart happy to read) or from a study course. You can find your own so eas­ily. Just recog­nise those mo­ments that fill you with peace. Be­cause hap­pi­ness re­ally is “the mo­ment”. Marie Gor­don, Toowoomba
