You’ve heard the expression: “Be in the know.”
Well, how about this one: Be in the NOW.
Our lives are all so busy... work, meetings, kids, spouses or significant others, housework, bills, errands, friends, networking, holidays, weddings, community events... it never ends! If your life is like mine, it often seems like we’re all just buzzing around like crazy people, with our focus only on the next thing on our agendas - and NOT on the moment we’re experiencing NOW.
It’s not easy to be present at all times, to really savor the moment you’re in. The whirlwind of responsibilities and obligations we all have can get in the way.
But, just as “be in the know” is a great reminder that knowledge is the key to success... and that in order to be the best we can be we must constantly learn and grow, “be in the NOW” is a guideline that directs us to make the time – everyday – to stop. To breathe. To focus on what we're doing, and really experience the moment we’re in with all of our senses open.
I feel that EVERY moment, no matter how seemingly insignificant, mundane, or even unpleasant, adds purpose and meaning to your life. Every instant in life is a gift... so take the time to unwrap it, marvel at it, and fully appreciate it.
Warmly (and in the now!),
