The present. Now. Right this moment.
It’s all that we have; this second.
Over the past months, I have experienced happiness, loss, love and pain. I have needed, I have wanted, and I have done. I have been present.
Think about your everyday, how often you daydream about that 5pm clock out, the upcoming weekend, or a tropical vacation planned for 6 months.
What about how often you check in with yourself right at that moment, in present time? I bet there is quite a difference.
We are always dreaming about the future, not realizing that NOW is all we have.
We procrastinate, assume that our future will go as planned. We say “I’ll start Monday”. “After this weekend’s party, I will make better choices”, or “Oh, I’ll do that later”.
Why later? Why do we assume that there is always a later?
I am not saying to stop dreaming, to stop planning and to stop wanting….but to simply LIVE what you are dreaming, planning and wanting.
Stop putting it off.
Change what you want to change, go after your dreams, do not let fear hold you back. This goes for EVERY aspect your life; jobs, relationships, and goals.
Remember that the tomorrow you are waiting for is not guaranteed, but if you are happy, NOW, you are fulfilled.
The quote is true: “Live like there’s no tomorrow” . “Live like you were dying”.
Do not waste another day. Embrace every second of the present.
Learn to love and life your life…now. xo
