I promise you that this blog post was not inspired by carpe diem in any way but I am all about realizing what you have here in the present and not dwelling on the past or looking too far ahead in the future. I know for a fact that we are all very guilty when it comes to dwelling too much in the past. Sometimes it’s just too hard to let go of! BUT we have to in order to achieve all of those life goals that you planned. We also cannot dwell too much on the future. Although planning ahead is great, it is often stressful to worry about things that haven’t happened yet or won’t happen at all. What I would like for you to do from this point forward is to stop worrying! Let’s agree to seize the moment and focus on what’s happening right now. It’s time that we start appreciating the present and enjoy these precious moments whether it be family life, your current career, or anything that’s going on right now that makes you happy. Sadly these great moments get overlooked because we don’t stop to appreciate them.
We must take time out of our busy schedules to stop and think about what we are accomplishing. Even when you set your goals you may tend to focus on what will be accomplished but what about right now? What are you doing at this very moment to get to where you want to be. Are you feeling proud of yourself for taking charge and going after you want? We simply focus on what happened and what;s going to happen and completely ignore what’s happening now. We are depriving ourselves from seizing the moment and it is time that we put a stop to this! Appreciate those around you, appreciate those opportunities that are being sent your way, and appreciate yourself at this very moment. Let’s vow to no longer dwell on the past of the unknown future.
