Now that the New Year is here, many people are looking back over 2016 and picking out the highlights. Others like myself, however, are looking back to see what lessons can be learned for living better in 2017. So now is the right time to reflect and be grateful for all we have, learned and experienced and although so much may not have been so good, we at least learned how to live in the moment much better anyway knowing our brightest future hinges on our ability to pay attention to the present moment because life unfolds in the NOW. That reflection should be the most important lesson we have learned.
That and soothing mindfulness is what we can be exited about as we nurture life, knowing we’re bringing that first and foremost with us into this New Year. So always remind yourself that it is so easy to get trapped in thoughts of the future or the past that we forget to experience, let alone enjoy, what’s happening right now. I wish everyone a very HAPPY NEW YEAR while you continue celebrating and savoring life without all its distractions and always making the time to enjoy your life NOW the best you can. And remember: There’s no need to wait for tomorrow because tomorrow will always become today as today is yesterday’s tomorrow.
