Recently, I read a quote attributed to Buddha that states: “What you are now is what you have been; but what you will be is what you do now”. For me, this quote embodies an emphasis on the power of the present, and how, the past can lose its grasp allowing life change to become possible in the moment.
Many of us overlook the present moment, as we have our gaze focused on the future. We imagine a time when the conditions will be ripe for happiness. We turn our eyes toward the fantasy and spend our time there rather in the time in which we find ourselves. The time for creating the life we want for ourselves is NOW. Where do you find yourself, there or here? What small step can you take now that will create the life you want for yourself?
