All pain, frustration, sadness and anger stems from something that we focus on in the past or the future. If we are truly in the present moment and embracing the very essence of who we are in the now, we experience a bliss that words can't describe. There is sense of liberation that allows us to build true relationships, tap into our god-like creativity/potential and experience true joy and happiness.
We have all been guilty of spending far too much time worrying about the future based on our experiences in the past. Spending too much time worrying about these time based experiences mean that you end up forgetting about putting your energy into the most precious moment – the Present moment! Think about this for a second – has there ever been a time in your life where it hasn’t been the present moment? Of course not! We are always physically in the present moment, but our minds are constantly travelling between the past and the future – fearing what has happened and then using those experiences to then create anxiety about the future.
So start now and give yourself the gift of spending more time maximising the enjoyment of the now. When you are with your loved ones, don’t be thinking about work, be present and loving for them. Spend time in nature, see the beauty of the trees, the sound of the birds, the soft breeze brushing off your face. By all means, have a clear vision of your future, but pour your heart and soul into the present moment and watch the creative energy flow J
Always remember, yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery but the present moment is a gift!
