Living in the Moment.....

By Eri Anton


So many of us have goals and dreams we want to accomplish and see come true.  We are so driven for a future state of being that we often look past today and live in the moment of time we are in.    Life can be busy and so many things compete for our time.   I have spent the last few years of my life learning and growing at such a fast pace and although I preach balance and regularly make or find time to have balance you still can lose sight of the moment and of true happiness.

On America's Got Talent there was a singer who was audutioning named Nightbird and she was diagnosed with Terminal cancer and she sang like a bird.  It was so beautiful and she said sometimes you just cant wait for everything in life to be perfect before you are happy.   She was so right.   Her words remind us how impiortant it is to not wait for a future state of being to happen before we allow ourselves to be happy in the moment.

Wherever we are today we have something to be thankful for.  If you are having trouble finding your happiness be grateful for something.   You can be grateful for your hardship as they help you grow and learn.  Diamonds are formed from great heat and pressure and a pearl is a grain of sand that irritates the oyster and gold is purified from high heat.   It is those discomforts that make us grow the most so be grateful for them.

If you don't have any major issues in life be thankful for those around you.  Be thankful for the moment in time you are experiencing right now.   Living in the moment is a must for happiness.   It is great to have goals and dreams but never forget to be happy in the moment.
