Everyday Inspirations

Today is a gift. That's why they call it the present.
I am a planner. I always have an agenda, itinerary or list. Sometimes it's hard to stop and live in the moment because I want to be one step ahead of myself. People like me may exist in the present but we don't always appreciate reality because we are already planning for what is next. We get so caught up in what we are going to do with our lives that we forget to enjoy today.

If there is anything I have learned from my husband (and there are many things) it is the importance of living in the now. To be successful it is often important to plan, but sometimes you need to just be. Take a moment to just exist—a moment to appreciate what you have. Take a moment to applaud your successes without worrying about what is next. Otherwise, time will fly by and you will have amazing experiences you can't remember. Choose a moment and live in it. 

"Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That is why they call it the present."
-Eleanor Roosevelt
