Living one day at a time

Standard

So I had a good lesson last week in living in the present moment and not trying to rush ahead with life – my usual tactic- when my scheduled post only to have it disappear into cyber space. Today I had another reminder on the importance of living one day at a time so here I sit on a Monday night and type so that I know it will actually publish! 🙂

The truth is though that I am bloody impatient in life. There I’ve said it.  I’m the person who is always thinking 3 steps ahead while working on a task. I’m the one who literally can’t sit still because I have so many things that I could be doing.  I’m the one who hates waiting to do or say something which could be happening now.  I’d love to sugar coat my impatience as enthusiasm however it isn’t that sweet.  My impatience often turns to irritation at myself and others which is not the best look for someone advocating health and stress-less days! 🙂

I do however notice that the more I think and talk about stress-less tools, emotional release tools (EFT and Bach Flower Remedies) along with well-being, the more I am aware of my actions and the faster I am able to ‘nip’ my behaviour in the bud.  I bring my focus back to the here and now so that I can make that moment count.  Time is not renewable and actions speak louder than words.  I’m learning. I’m learning minute by minute, hour by hour, day by day to make the most of it all.

As I said today while out I was reminded of all of this as a woman shared her life story with me.  Everything can change in an instant so it is important to make sure I am living the life I want.  I am so fortunate to live the life I do.  I am also so fortunate to have a loving and supportive network around me, of both friends and family, and even though sometimes my hurried arse is too busy to show it I am so, so grateful for all of you and everything you bring to my life.

Sending you all lots of loving thoughts and reminders to make the most of each of your days with the ones you love.
