There’s so many times in our life where we mentally plan ‘When I get enough money, I’m going to do this’ or ‘Next week I’m going to take my friend out’ But what about right now? What are you doing right now? Tomorrow is never promised unfortunately, so it’s better that you embrace and enjoy the moment; the here and the now.
Being the human beings that we are, we are always looking at the next thing, or looking elsewhere rather than taking in the now, cherishing and living in the moment. The way the world is moving, becoming more fast paced, more stressful, more frustrating and more demanding; the time we have to just sit and take in the now is becoming more and more limited when it shouldn’t be. It should be a vital part of all of our lives to be able to sit down and just be still—taking in each and every moment we are given.
When was the last time that you sat and took in your surroundings. Paid attention to your breath, immersed yourself in the sound of silence. It is so rare that we get the opportunity to just sit and be still. However, with the hustle and the bustle of modern day life; it is now more vital than ever before that you find new ways to embrace every second.
When you make the time to do this, it helps to put things into perspective, and most of all gives you peace of mind. Sometimes we need to take a step back and take a deep breath and embrace everything—the good and the bad. The good, to appreciate the smaller and finer things in life, and the bad to recognise that everything may not go as planned, but it’s part of our individual journey to greatness.
There is a saying, ‘Live life in the moment because everything else is uncertain’, don’t walk around thinking that your life may end, but rather, embrace that you are alive and take in everything with happiness and a full heart!
