A Gift

February 23, 2014

Do you know what it means and how it feels to be present....truly, genuinely, fully present?

 

In the moment.

Right now.

At no other time.

Fully aware.

 

Ya, I rarely do either, but I'm learning.  

 

I'm learning that the more I try to be present, the more I realize how often I am not.

 

Actually - I just spent a solid ten minutes beating myself up mentally for not being present in recent circumstances, and thus - I did it again. I wasn't present.  I was in the past - regretting, wishing, apologizing, remembering....

 

Let me not even get started about all the time I spend in the future - anticipating, fearing, wondering, planning....

 

I was present in this photo though and I am working toward more moments like this: in the now, with my husband, at sunrise, on our last day in Mexico. 

 

It only lasted a short time, that full, genuine, true presence, with no regrets and no plans - but I sure felt it. 

 

.....those fleeting moments of presence - oh what A GIFT!
