The Importance Of The Present Moment:
By: Diane Lang
If we are not in the now, we will find ourselves in the past or the future.
We can get wrapped up in our past baggage. The wounds that haven’t healed, the forgiveness we haven’t given, the mistakes/failures we haven’t learned from, this causes us to question ourselves, doubt ourselves and feel insecure.
When we live in the future, we start creating a story based on our past of what it will look like. Creating the future based on past baggage can cause anticipatory anxiety and choices based on fear.
Neither one of these places is a healthy spot to be in.
Instead, be conscious of each moment. Be mindful of the situation. This takes us off of autopilot. We can think and create based on clarity.
When we are mindful/conscious, we are in the now where everything is ok.
The more time we spend in the now, the happier and less stressed we are.
