This Moment Belongs To You

“It stands to reason that anyone who learns to live well will die well. The skills are the same: being present in the moment, and humble, and brave, and keeping a sense of humor. (361)” ~ Victoria Moran, Younger by the Day: 365 Ways to Rejuvenate Your Body and Revitalize Your Spirit

Do you find yourself looking over your shoulder or glancing around the next corner?

Do you take time to breathe in the beauty of this moment life is presenting you?

Say hello to that voice inside you. Notice the person inside your skin. Become friends.

In. Out. In. Out. Be aware of your breath. What are your body and spirit telling you?

What do you see, hear, or smell? Reach out and touch the world right where you are.

For a time, forget about yesterday and tomorrow. What is today, this moment, calling you to do?

Cast yourself upon the bank of time.

Be the driftwood forming beauty with each passing second.

Be the waves gently lapping upon the shore, soothing all in its company.

Be the clouds dancing in the sky to the melody of the wind.

Be the sand absorbing all within its realm.

Enjoy this moment. It will be over before you know it.

Take this moment. Let it exist for you.

  1. It took a long time before I could become friends with my own skin! I can’t tell you how much $ you’ve saved me on therapy. 🙂 Have a wonderful weekend!

    Suzi, this a post that I need to print out and read every single day before heading out the door, because it’s an AWESOME reminder of how to live EACH day – in the moment!

    And I also love the quote….
