Mindfulness is all about finding joy in the present moment. If you take a step back and think about it, it makes perfect sense. Doesn’t it? You are alive in this very moment, why not make the most of it? Yet still most of us function on autopilot. We are busy making plans, thinking about the future and trying to be as efficient as possible, often multi-tasking our way through the day. Think for instance about today. Have you truly appreciated already any moment of this day? Do you remember your way to work? Did you really experience anything fully today? What if this had been the last morning you had on this earth? Wouldn’t you have tried to soak in all seconds of this day already to fully live?

Live For Now

One of the biggest secrets to a happy life is to be in the moment you are in. What happened yesterday doesn’t exist in your present moment. If you’re thinking of yesterday’s moment and what you “could have” done, you’re not doing what you can do in this moment. The past moments whether good or bad can’t touch you unless you let them. The future doesn’t need be thought of because it’s unknown. It’s only now that you can be grateful, generous, happy and reactive. ♥ This moment is your life and your destiny, so embrace it fully. ♥
