Stay in the Moment

Life is filled with hills and valleys.

While our hearts can be overflowing with joy one minute, they can be heavy with all kinds of sorrows the next. We just never know what each day will bring.

One of the keys to remaining positive and free-from-fear is to stay in the moment.

Today really is all anyone has. Not a single person alive knows whether he or she will see the light of day tomorrow. Yesterday is gone forever, leaving only memories in its path.

As cliche as it sounds, I really love the expression "Today is a gift. That's why it's called the 'present.'"

Even if the moment brings sadness, we can survive it because we know it will pass. Good times always return. Nothing remains the same, except for God.

Make the most of today, one minute at a time. Be pleasant with every person you meet. Savor contacts with friends and family members. Really look at the trees, especially the last leaves of fall clinging tenaciously to the branches. Feast your eyes on the clouds that dance across the blue sky. Cherish all the beauty that comes your way today.

Unwrap the gift of today with expectation and gratitude for every precious moment.
