Today, I felt the need to write about living in the moment and why it is important to do so. Promise it’s a short read, but a valuable reminder.
How many of us actually really live in the moment?
One of the famous Latin phrase Carpe diem means ‘seize the day’, it makes sense to do this, when you think about it, that we have no control over what has passed and what is to come, then why not live in the moment and seize what you’ve got. It is sad to see a day, hours, minutes of our precious, limited life passing by us and us wasting it in worthless matters that have passed or not here or we are just wasting it on toxic thoughts.
“Forever is composed of nows”
Many of us are caught up in what happened- who said and did what, and are constantly replaying these thoughts in our minds over and over again only to ruin our present moments of joy and bliss. Seizing the moment and living in the moment brings bliss and joy. Just imagine your on borrowed time and you have a long list of things you want to do that need to be done in the day, creating this mindset will keep you in the present.
Eleanor Roosevelt (American first lady, diplomat and activist) alluded that the “purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.”
If you’re looking for the self-motivation to achieve your goals, chase your dreams, and fully be the person you want to be, it’s time to seize the day and allow present-moment-living to motivate you to take charge of the Now.
Peace and Blessing
