Today mark’s the halfway point through my Health Coach Training Program. How am I feeling right now? A bit overwhelmed, yet inspired to continue towards my goal. I am enjoying this moment (something I’ve been trying to do for a while now).
It’s not as easy to live in the moment as one would think. Our minds (my mind) constantly drifts away to some past occurrence or memory and stays there for what may seem like a minute or two, but in reality becomes hours. Then it switches back to focus for a second before it again drifts off into the space of the unknown, in other words the future. It can be scary, yet exciting — but the fact is…this future may or may not ever occur.
This is when I realize that I have a hard time living in the moment. I am often missing my “right nows.” I see other people living in their moment and enjoying their “right nows.” Are you living in your right now?
I get it– To you, your right now may not be so great to you, but it’s most likely better than before and is what’s going to make your future seem so amazing when it gets here.
So my next question to you is…What is happening with you right now? In this moment. Maybe even close your eyes and feel exactly how you are feeling in this moment. Are you tired? Anxious? Sad? Happy? Calm and focused? And what has you feeling this way?
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. – 2 Timothy 1:7
It’s important that we take note of the moments in our lives’ embracing them not with fear, but knowing that we have a big say in how it plays out. Do you need to make some life changes that will ultimately affect your right now moments? I know that after this epiphany that ultimately led to me writing this blog post, I came up with a list for myself.
As we all know, it’s so easy to look at others and want what they have or want to live a life like them…but how about we start wanting what WE HAVE and try to live a LIFE LIKE OUR OWN?
I’ll leave you with that thought for this moment.
