Being FULLY PRESENT to Life
Fulfillment happens in the
present moment.Most people spend their time fretting
about the past OR worrying about the future. Do you know anyone like this? We
live in a fast-paced world, and the concept of slowing down and appreciating
each moment may seem like a waste of time. However, it is in the
present moment where you will find FULFILLMENT and joy.
SOULFUL CHALLENGE: Take ONE WEEK and consciously PRACTICE living in the present moment. It'll change your life.
There is so much to notice in the NOW; Colors, shapes, textures, sound, feelings, emotions, beauty, love and all the miracles of life. When you are with someone, "be with" them fully without thinking about what you'll say next, or what you'll do tomorrow. BE present. Listen to their words AND to what is behind the words. What else can you notice when you are present to the moment?
There are numerous places to "practice" living in the present moment - in your relationships, with your boss or employees, while making love, during a workout, eating a meal, taking a shower, watching a sunset, with your children, and even the clerk at the grocery store. And, as you spend more time "being present" to the NOW, you'll naturally feel a greater sense of fulfillment.
