“The Present is a Gift, that’s why it’s called the Present…”

Good morning ♡

Blessed Monday to you all. Here’s to a great week ahead 🙂 Focus on the gift of the present moment. Too often we find ourselves stuck in thoughts of past situations or predicaments, saying shoulda-woulda-coulda. Then, there’s the thoughts of the future, where we overplan, getting caught up in what we think ought to be. Either side, we have no control. I have benn infamous for worrying, presently not as much. My father always said to me growing up, “Dont worry girl, just focus on what is here now & cross the other bridges when you get to them.” To plan is important, but also remember that what’s done is done & we truly can’t predict what will happen tomorrow. The only way to create the future we want is to focus on what is right in front of us: today. We are standing in it. Embrace it! Show gratitude! Focus in the good we can do today & lay that as foundation for the tomorrow we want to see, because it’s within this present moment that we can harness what we need to aid in a brighter tomorrow. Love yourself & be yourself. Peace & Love ♡ ☆

Activity: Today’s try this: When I find myself in a worrying state, thinking those shoulda-woulda-couldas or what ifs when it comes to the next day, I look at what my actions are at that presnt moment. It could be washing dishes or making the bed, & my mind starts travelling. To bring myself back to he present & tell myself, “I am putting this glass in the cupboard, working at keeping my kitchen clean, ” or “I am spreading this sheet & making my room feel in order.” It brings me out of worry & into focus on the gratitude of the moment. Try it! Anytime today when you feel the past or future worries spring up, focus on your present task at hand & bring peace to where you are right now, with whatever you are doing right now ( if what you’re doing is not healthy, this may also be a wake up call ti help you make a healthier choice) 🙂
