Dear ones, I'd like to ask you a question....
Are you living in the moment? Really living in the moment? I pose this question because I feel it's an immensely important one. Not so long ago I would have answered quite confidently "yes", but I would have been wrong.
How do you know if you're truly living in the moment? Sometimes giving an example is the best form of explanation. Let me share a true story of a day in my life, a moment in time. This is an ordinary scene. It turns into an extraordinary scene. That's what I want in my life...ordinary which I turn into extraordinary, even for the most simple moments...
Ron and I are standing in a parking lot. He is standing in front of me, facing me. We're talking about an everyday little bit of nothing. The light shifts, sunshine breaks free from cloud cover. Ron squints slightly against the sun, at the same time he smiles at something I've just said.
Before: I think to myself, "He looks so handsome. I love when he gets that expression on his face. I love him." We get in the truck and drive off.
Now: I think to myself, "He looks so handsome..." Then I throw my arms around his neck and say, "I love you."
An ordinary fleeting, little moment in time turns into a magical, cherished little moment in time. The feelings that result from the "Now" moment are priceless. It's now something I'll never forget, and Ron is moved (as well as slightly surprised). Never underestimate the element of surprise :). More importantly, he feels loved.
Let me ask you again...Are you living your life in the moment? I hope with all my heart that you are, in every aspect of your life. The results will change your life.
Love yourself and live in the moment.
Thank you for stopping by, sweet friends.
And thank you for sharing this moment with me...xo
