The Importance Of Living In The "Now"

Tanya RadComment

It's very easy to get caught up in living 10 steps ahead...

I'll be happy when I get that promotion

I'll be happy when I get that new boyfriend

I'll be happy when I move to that big house

I'll be happy when I go on that vacation

I'll be happy when I get that new car...


We are constantly wishing for something in the future. And although I think there's nothing wrong with having dreams and hopes for the future... I think it is SO important to remember to HAVE FUN NOW!!!


For example: my trip to Vancouver...

Could I have thought of a million reasons why I should stay home.. get things done... work ...... but I chose to spend a girls weekend in Vancouver... and I have to tell you it was the most REFRESHING WEEKEND EVER!

I enjoyed myself... I indulged .... I took a minute to forget about what's "next" and just enjoy THE NOW! and I'm SO GLAD I DID IT!!!


I'm not sitting at the airport .. looking back at my weekend with the biggest smile on my face..

 And tomorrow... I will resume with my life and keep moving and grinding forward... 

But I'm so glad I took the time to get away and let my mind relax !
