Happiness Resides Here & Now August 23, 2010

Posted by nrhatch in Happiness, Life Balance, Mindfulness.

We see the world behind our eyes.  Our past experiences impact how we perceive this moment.  Over time, we develop biases, prejudices, and preferences.

At times, our preferred way of dealing with the world gets in the way of our ability to see this moment and all that it offers with clarity.

The more determined we are to live life fully, enjoying the moment at hand, the more connected we become to the peace, love, joy, and bliss which resides within.

Mulling over pain, hurt, and frustration rarely adds to our enjoyment of the journey.  If we want lasting happiness, we need to fully embrace what is being offered right here, right now.

We need to stay in the moment, let the past recede from view, and allow the future to unfold.

Thanks. I used to spend a fair amount of time analyzing the past ~ what I said, what they said, what I meant, what they meant. And still I got it wrong.

Now, I’m much more willing to just go with the flow. People have good days and bad days. Me included. But the best way to increase our good days is by LIVING THEM!

Dive in! The water’s grand.

Thank you Nancy, always a pleasure to wake up and enjoy your inspiring lessons with my first cup of coffee of the day. Now I am going to enjoy the sunrise 🙂

I’ve seen many more sunsets in my life than sunrises. Guess that means that I’m not much of a morning person. : )

Enjoy the break of day!
