In the Moment

Today’s thoughts revolved around living in the moment. For some reason everything that happened and things I saw today were about being in the moment.

By the way, if you just want my workout log for today, scroll down. If you have some time, keep reading…

How many of us are guilty of robbing ourselves of our present?

How many of us are guilty of worrying about a future beyond our control?

How many of us miss the ‘small’ moments because our thoughts have taken us 5,10, 50 years beyond?

For years, I hear people say, ‘live in the moment’ and in those years, I didn’t understand what that meant; foolishly thinking that I must be out there, doing anything and everything. At the same time getting rather frustrated because my checklist haven’t been met. Living in the moment is more than that.

It’s about being present, giving right now your unwavering attention, taking in everything the ‘everyday’ has to offer.  My theory is, if you can’t appreciate the ordinary moments, how can you fully appreciate the special/milestone ones?

Living in the moment, to me, is about putting technology and thoughts about the future aside for a while; focus on what’s in front of you. Taking in everything with your senses and in a way, being content with right now because these are moments you can never take back. You can’t store years, months, weeks, days, hours, minutes or seconds, once it’s passed, it’s gone. If you missed a moment, you may be oblivious to it or you’ll have to live it through someone else recollection.

Any thoughts on this is much appreciated.
