Happy Monday wonderful readers!! With the hustle and bustle of Easter weekend, it wasn’t easy for me to stay present. How have you been holding up with living in the now?
Do you ever find yourself saying things like:
“I can’t wait for the weekend”
“I can’t wait for my vacation”
“I can’t wait for the holidays”
“I can’t wait…insert any slew of options here”
I’ve realized anytime that I say the words “I can’t wait…“, that I am no longer present. You can’t possibly be living in the now if you’re always waiting for the next moment to happen.
So this weekend was super busy and I found myself getting a bad migraine and then next thing I know I was can’t waiting the weekend away! Have you ever fell victim of a similar circumstance?
Up until now, I never realized I was wishing my life away and that I wasn’t experiencing the true happiness that each moment presents itself. Right now decide to be happy. Decide to be present so that every moment is one that you look forward to.
This makes me think of the movie Click with Adam Sandler (spoiler alert)…
If you’ve seen the movie, you know he basically can’t wait to get to every next stage in his life, that he goes his whole life on cruise control never really experiencing any joy or happiness. He misses out on every milestone and happy moment and then his life is over.
When you aren’t present and living in the now you are essentially using the remote control of your life to stay on autopilot. You’re life is passing by and you aren’t really experiencing the joy it truly brings.
Just like in the movie, Adam Sandlars character gets a second chance at life to live without the remote. This is YOUR second chance. Right NOW. Choose to take it.
Be present. Watch your life be overwhelmed with joy!
Until next time, make magical moments! Xoxo 🙂
