Be Now

 

 

When you have the opportunity to enjoy yourself, do you choose not to?  Probably not.  When you have the chance to be aware and present and live life to the fullest, do you choose not to? Sometimes, maybe all the time.  Tiny Time Machines sent us an email with their product: a watch that doesn’t keep time, but rather, reminds you to stay present.  It reminds you that all you need is you and the moment.  Such a beautiful message for all of us to take to heart.  It is so easy to get stuck in the past and the future and the to-do lists and jobs and people you have to appease.  There will always be some of that because, let’s face it, we live in a wild and crazy world and in order to get things done, we have to prepare.  What are you really preparing for if you never experience the moment?  Take time this week to enjoy something you’ve been planning for and see how it feels.  You will probably notice that you enjoy that big event more, feel more satisfied with the work you did to prepare, and learn the lessons you need to learn from it, but only if you can stay present throughout.  After this week’s practice, assess the results and perhaps you’ll have found a new way to approach the world!
