Life is not a someday thing
or a one day thing.
It is a right now,
Life is in the living,
every hour of every day.
On this beautiful Monday morning, I found this poem a powerful reminder! I’ve been thinking a lot about the future and needed the reminder that I am living now. not then.
It is easy to get distracted and lose focus on right now, isn’t it?
I have been planning and preparing and mentally challenging myself over some big changes that are looming rather largely on my horizon. It is accompanied by anticipation, fear and a sense that if I take my eyes off it, it may disappear like a mirage in the desert – never really there at all…
This morning, this quote I had copied into my diary some time ago jumped out at me as a reminder that here and now is my life.
I realised that if it is a mirage instead of a miracle, then obsessing focusing on it won’t make a scrap of difference.
I cannot put my life on hold, waiting for it. I need to live and experience all that is my crazy, topsy-turvy life at the moment.
And somehow, I feel a weight has been lifted. I don’t need to worry, fret or be fearful. I don’t need to be there, at all. Here is enough. There will be there when its time has come.
The challenge is to remember that. Regularly.
[I will be sharing the changes with you as soon as I can... they are all wonderful and positive.]
