It’s a beautiful day and I’m lucky enough to be sitting outside at my favourite bar having a morning coffee. I’ve just started a new book that I’ve been wanting to read for a while. And I’m really enjoying the moment. In the here and now.
The truth is that happiness is for us to enjoy now. It’s in the moment. It took me a long time to see that. From whatever has happened in the past – ten years ago, last month or even yesterday – which have all been and gone – to whatever will happen after tomorrow – which hasn’t happened yet – all of that is what it was and what it will be.
You see it naturally in children who get lost in the moment. Yes, as adults, we have to go to work after the weekend, but that hasn’t happened yet. Let’s all take a moment to enjoy the moment. Now.
So, wherever you are, whatever you’re doing and whoever you’re with, I hope you’re enjoying your own moment now.
