Be in the Moment

22 09 2011

So many of us no longer know how to be in the moment.   We are all so busy trying to figure out tomorrow and while there is nothing wrong with planning ahead so many of us stress over it.  We focus on how come I am not married yet, why don’t I have a house, when will I be able to buy a new car, when will I get a promotion.   We worry about the things we have left to do, should do, could do or want.  Sometimes we are so busy stressing we don’t have time to truly enjoy where we are.   Life is a work in progress and it is in understanding where you are and rolling around in it like you did back in the day on the playground, that truly helps you get to where you are desire to go.  

I know you are thinking I have really lost it this time right?  Well there is always something to get from where we currently are that will help us grow, or know from every experience we encounter. Like while you are single, learn to enjoy being with YOU!  Don’t look around for Mr. Right or Mr. Right Now.  Instead look for YOU!  Often times when we focus on where we want to go and we spend so much time on tomorrow, we don’t get prepared TODAY and the future comes before we know it.  So learn to date YOU and work on you and sooner or later as you are out to that fancy dinner with Me, myself & I, Mr. Right walks in and asks if he can join you.  I know I would not want it any other way.  Do you know why?  Because when you are happy in the place you are in, that is when you truly are able to grasp the lessons you need to learn while you gain confidence in where you are.  It is in this that you find that happiness in YOU  and begin to feel complete and after all it is when you are complete that, that  thing you have been dreaming of comes to you.  Think about it, who wants a man who ain’t ready? Or a house that is falling apart and needs repairs.  It is in the journey and the lessons we learn along the way that we find our own completeness.  Think of it as the college of life.    So if we can just trust the process, when it is time, that thing we have been wishing for will come to us as whole as we are.  So NO you do not need a man to complete you…YOU complete you! So learn to be in the moment with you and love the place you are in and as you do, you in essence allow God to do all the heavy lifting as you trust that if He put that desire in your heart so He will make it come to pass.  So sit back, relax in the place you are in, grow and know who you and who made you the gift that you are and watch every perfect gift come straight to you as if God gift wrapped it for you Himself!   So ladies let’s all learn to be happy where we are on the way to where we are going.  This is what I call learning to be in the moment.

 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. – Matthew 6:34

  “It’s okay to lust for the future and treasure the past but remember, being in the moment is a gift, that’s why they call it the present.” —Lee Siber

 The state of your life is nothing more than a reflection of your state of mind.
–Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

Breathe.  Let go and remind yourself that this very moment is the only one you know you have for sure – Oprah
