It Doesn’t Get Any Better

Unease, anxiety, tension, stress, worry — all forms of fear — are caused by too much future, and not enough presence. Guilt, regret, resentment, grievances, sadness, bitterness, and all forms of nonforgiveness are caused by too much past, and not enough presence. ~Eckhart Tolle

Yes, I am a firm believer in staying in the moment. Over the years I’ve gotten better at it, but it takes an awareness and a conscious choice. So IF I’m aware that I need to be appreciating whatever is happening right here, right now, then I do stay in the present and it’s infinitely more gratifying than looking backward or trying to predict what will happen next. I mean, honestly? How often am I ever right anyway?

So how can I stay in the moment more often?

Hmmm… perhaps if I had a reminder of some sort, it would help encourage me to remember.

And thus, the answer.

Ha ZAH! In the moment!

Ha ZAH! In the moment!

Guess what will be at the top of MY Christmas list? 🙂

I just thought it was way too awesome to not tell everybody about it!

Tomorrow I’ll be carting my hubby to the hospital for day surgery – send all your positive thoughts his way and I’ll catch back up when it’s over!!

Peace, ~me

  1. hey! i simply love that quote. it’s exactly the thing to stick on the dressing table mirror to be reminded…

    and your hubby’s got all my good thoughts and vibes heading his way. good luck!!!

  2. Saying a prayer for the day surgery!

  3. That’s great!

    For staying in the present, I would recommend feeling everything. We mentally observe too much…feel as much as you can feel (out of curiosity). In feeling the body, the air moving, the sun, the chair, etc…you will be present.

  4. Is this an actual watch? I *love* the design — where can I find it??? Where? where? where?
