Come to a halt for a minute. Now. Yes, you can. Close your eyes. Appreciate the present moment. People tend to regret the past, to say “I should rather have acted in a different way…” People are also good at projecting themselves in the future “When I have more money… When I retire… When I have some time…” The essential is omitted. We are living in the present. No one can change the past. We can only accept it. Tomorrow doesn’t exist yet. Only the present matters. Let’s appreciate how lucky we are to breathe, to live. Let’s be aware of the importance we have. Let’s be appeased, serene, at this very moment.
