As admirable as setting goals and reaching them may be, you can’t get so focused on accomplishing your goals that you make the mistake of not enjoying where you are right now.
I cannot stress enough the importance of living in the NOW. My hope is that more people can put this “mindfulness” into action to help their sorrows and anxieties. Goals to have are beautiful to be sure, but getting caught up in the future can make some stumble and fall. Many people set goals and do not realize that today is the moment to take those baby steps to the bigger picture. Nothing can come overnight.
Today is the day to set wheels in motion. Look around you and see the beauty in right now. Right now, birds are singing, the sun is shining its warmth upon us, the moon guides us by night, flowers are in bloom or getting ready to, you are reading and enjoying what you read, you are taking the steps forward to reach the bigger picture of who you are, you are growing.
We have the opportunity to give hope and inspiration to others. How about making eye contact, with a smile on your face, and saying hello to a person you do not know as they walk by you? Your smile may be the beauty they see in today.
Find peace in the moment. Sit and breathe, and do nothing but focus on your breath. Do this several times a day to help relieve the stresses of life.
Offer hope and love to others freely, this will bring you much happiness, and bring happiness to others.
