Today is a good day to focus on the present moment because that is really all that you have.
The past is gone, and it’s only brought to life by your focus on it.
The future is just a projection not reality.
Living in the past and future, whether mentally or emotionally, only draws energy away from you. Losing this vital energy can lead to stagnation in life. Come back to the present moment and draw your energy inward to find your centre.
The present is so called as it is a gift.
Focus today on living in the moment.
For instance, when you eat today focus on the food – the colour, the taste, the texture. Don’t hurriedly shove it in your mouth as you read or watch TV.
When someone is speaking to you, focus on what they are saying, not what you want to say in response. Listen. Really listen!
The present is important; it’s the only thing you have.
Focus today on living in the moment. This will be a real challenge.
Don’t think about what even happened an hour ago or what you need to do an hour from now. Focus on this present moment. Notice how uncomfortable your mind is with this exercise. It’s probably jumping all around.
This is called your monkey mind. Send your monkey mind off to a corner. Settle into your body. Take deep breaths and release everything – the need to do, the urge to think and plan, even the desire to feel. Just breathe.
“I live in the current moment with my focus fully present.”
