Here and Now
Thursday, August 26, 2010
I've been dwelling too long in the past and future and have been missing my present life. Opportunities come and go and I'm too busy thinking about what I could have done or could be doing instead of doing it.
My past has made me who I am and despite the things I want to change I'm a pretty darn good person. I have potential in a lot of areas and am excited with my life. My future at times is scary. I don't know when we'll be earning enough money to survive. I don't know what tomorrow holds, or even an hour from now.
I know that right now I have a vision of where I want to go and I have a road that I have already walked but the only way to manifest my vision is to stay in the here and now. To live life now, be present. Make my goals and then DO the steps needed to. Stop always planning... Some day... Tomorrow.... Next month... When I graduate... No. Now. What is happening at this moment? How does my coffee taste? smell? feel? My goodness one of my cockateils has the most amazing singing voice.
Peace comes with being present.
