Learning to live "in the moment" is an abstract thought for some. They're too busy rushing around going to jobs they hate, trying to fill some "ideal" of what life is "supposed" to be and they're miserable.
Ever notice that? I have. They're the ones rushing around wishing they had more time saying life is passing them by...they never get the chance to slow down and just enjoy it.
Spending time doing things we "have" to do is a part of life...but it's only a part.
I think if people were to spend as much time doing what they enjoy as they spend doing what they have to do...more people would claim satisfaction within their lives.
Do you live in the "moments" of your life? What are the "moments" of your life? What brings you feelings of contentment and joy? Do you find when you're feeling these feelings and are living in your moments...a sense of calm and steadiness is there. It's a feeling that I struggle sometimes to put into words, but it's a feeling you feel in your whole body. It's peace..it's comfort and it's one of life's best feelings. And we are capable of having it...of feeling it...and living it.
A whole new perspective can be born when you choose to live in the moments of your life instead of rushing between them. Live for you and live well.
