Are you here? Right now, in this moment, are you present? This is a bit of a trick question. Most of us are not. We are in the future, hoping for or dreading some real or imagined event. Conversely, we are perhaps in the past, agonizing over a trauma or enjoying a sweet memory. These activities, looking forward or glancing back, have their usefulness, but right now, you are needed here.
Do you know why? Here, this moment, is very special. You are standing in the gateway of so many good things, and they are just waiting for you to notice so they can join you in this moment. So, just for now, let the past remain the past and the future go unpredicted. Let yourself have this moment and all the good that is waiting to flood in when you seize it.
