Being in the Moment

When was the last time you truly embraced the moment?

When was the last time you took a sip of your coffee, or tea, and actually tasted it?  Just focusing on how it feels in your tongue and savor it’s flavor.

When was the last time you looked around you not because you were expecting something but because you just want to relish your surrounding?  Just appreciating what’s taking place at that moment. 

When was the last time you spent time with a loved one, may it be your friend, your partner or your parents, and just really talked to them. Can you still remember the last time you just enjoyed the conversation with them without worrying about the messages on your phone, who liked your profile picture or what to do next?


We are usually trapped in the THE PAST and too caught up trying to figure out THE FUTURE that we forget to revel in the very and the only moment that matters, THE PRESENT. 

Thinking too much about the past and future only bring negative emotions such as anxiety, guilt and regret. Emotions that eventually lead  to depression.

Where we are right now at this moment might not be ideal but the truth is that we can’t find peace of mind by avoiding what’s in front of us. Not giving value of the present will only result to remorse and unhappiness.

So take the time to fully be in the moment, to consciously live today, before it’s too late and the only thing that we got are memories and the only thing that we can do is to reminisce the moments that we have never fully enjoyed.
