Live In The Moment
“We are very good at preparing to live, but not very good at living. We know how to sacrifice ten years for a diploma, and we are willing to work very hard to get a job, a car, a house, and so on. But we have difficulty remembering that we are alive in the present moment, the only moment there is for us to be alive.”
— Thich Nhat Hanh
I don't own this beautiful painting, but props to whoever made it.
I read this quote today and it really resonated with me and got me thinking. It also freed me from the stressful situation that I was in. This wasn't the first time reading about living in the moment and I'm sure you all agree. We pass through so many things about living in the moment and they get to us at that particular moment, but we somehow never give them the chance to change us to get us stop worrying too much about the future when the future actually starts today not tomorrow. What I do today is what I should pay attention to. Over thinking tomorrow will only prevent us from fully enjoying today. Yes, we can plan for tomorrow, but we shouldn't focus on tomorrow's plans and forget that I had a plan for today as well. If you miss today for tomorrow then you will miss tomorrow for after tomorrow and you will keep waiting for the rest of your life for tomorrow that never seems to come.
So, What is your plan for
I hope you're having a wonderful day,
So make the most of it.
