I think the key to a good quality life is n the present moment. It is in here and now. It is in the present that I am currently living in. I don't live in my past anymore and I don't know how I am going to live in the future. Too many people are preoccupied with their past ; not letting go and moving on. Too many people are obsessed with their future ; always rushing and looking at what comes next
But how many are mindful of the present?
The present is our centre. Our past and our future are in the periphery ; not because they are not important, but because they are not focus. The focus is on the here and now. The past is history, we learn from it. The future is mystery, we don't know much about it. Both the past and the future play a supporting role in the story of our life, but the present is the leading role.
It is all about the present moment.
The life that we currently live in is a fast-paced life. We are constantly reminded of our past and we are constantly pushed for our future. We need to spare some time each day to refocus our lives because the life that we live in tends to push us off course. Spend some time each day to revisit why we d the things that we do and differentiate between the things that matter and the things that don't. Spend sometime each day to step back and look at the bigger picture ; about where we came from, where we are and where we are going.
Spend some time each day to live in the moment.
