To live right now

by Hannah

I have an awful habit of forgetting to be present in the moment. All to often I catch myself dwelling on the future or the past and missing what is in front of me. It has been spoken of so often that it has become cliche, and yet who has mastered it. Is there anyone, ever, who has lived in the moment, free of worry, all the time? Yet even to attempt it, to try, can change your life. I find that if I keep it in my awareness as I go about my day, I appreciate the little things more and in general am just happier. I savor the moments with my son and my husband, the beauty of sunlight coming through a window, a moment of rest- even the taste of food.

Experience today- it is a gift.
