Do you realise how much time you spend in any moment thinking about the past, (maybe what we should or shouldn't have done) or in the future (worrying or thinking about what may happen)...and how little we spend in the present moment.
We can eat our lunch on the go...giving the food we eat hardly any thought at all. Never really fully experiencing the fullness of the flavour.
We rush from person to person, our heads full of what we need to do next, that we never fully engage with them. Which is a shame, because it has been said that the deepest need of most people is simply to be heard.
So how do we better engage with others? Or get to really taste and enjoy the food we are eating? Or really enjoy life...
The answer is to become more aware of living in the present moment. We do, after all, only have a small window of opportunity to create our lives...and that moment is now. We cannot change the past, and we have limited ability to influence the future. The only time we can have any influence over is now...
