Live in the NOW, not in the Wednesday!

My daughter and I were at the beach. It was a beautiful sunny Saturday in Coronado. She was lying on her towel in complete worry. Wednesday was going to be her first day at work at her very first job. This indeed was a very big step in her life.

I asked her if she wanted to go down to the water with me and she said she was too nervous about WEDNESDAY!!!!

Wednesday was four days away. And she was choosing to move out of her NOW and focus on the future. She started coming at me with a lot of what ifs.

What if I don’t know how to clock in?

What if someone asks me where something is and I don’t know?

What if I’m not doing things right?

What if……………….

I looked at her and I said “Be in the NOW, not in the WEDNESDAY!!”

My beautiful daughter smiled at me… She of course has heard me talk about this kind of stuff before. When she really thought about what she was doing she realized she had a choice.

She could sit there in absolute fear and focus on the unknown.

Or she could choose to bring herself back to the NOW.

Back to the beautiful beach!!!

Back to the warm sun on her face!!!

Back to life!!!

She got up and said “Your right mom, I am choosing to focus on NOW and besides it feels better”

How many times have you projected yourself out into the future?

Do you worry about things that haven’t even happened yet?

Do you spend most of your life in a state of panic?

There is so much you are missing out on when you behave this way.

I can remember being at the movies and not being able to pay attention because my mind was wondering all over the place. I was thinking about how there was probably going to be traffic. Or the different things in my life I was worried about.

Being in the NOW is so powerful!!!. Eckhart Tolle
”The Power of Now” explains it so beautifully.

My message to you today is embrace life, Enjoy life!

Be in the NOW!!!!
