Life is uncharted territory. It reveals its story one moment at a time.
Why do we often insist on looking far and wide for our golden opportunities? Rather than revel in the magic of the moment at hand, we instead choose to peer intently into the distance beyond; frantically searching the horizon in hopes of discovering those once in a lifetime chances that can turn our heads and turn our lives around.
As the old saying goes, we are sometimes unable to see the forest for the trees. Unnoticed by all but a select few, unparalleled opportunity and abundance abounds all around every one of us. Right here and right now, every moment of every day!
As Earl Nightingale said, "You are, at this moment, standing, right in the middle of your own acres of diamonds." Wow, acres and acres of diamonds all around us! But where are they? Why can't we see them? Before you can ever hold them in your hands, you must first look for them in the moment. And not a casual glance, mind you. You have to take the time to LOOK. They are there and always have been; all but obscured from ordinary view.
So how about it, are you ready to embark on a little treasure hunt? Are you ready to make the most of your moments on earth?
Only when your consciousness is totally focused on the moment you are in can you receive whatever gift, lesson, or delight that moment has to offer.
Barbara De Angelis
In order to reach out and grab a bundle of lifes great times, you must be able to zero in and fully focus your attention on the here and now; constantly gleaning all you can from this moment in time. And thats not always the easiest thing to do. After all, at any given moment you can be pulled over here and yanked over there, seemingly stretched about as thin as it gets. Your day to day responsibilities, both at home and at work, can siphon away a good deal of your time if allowed to do so.
Then, as if life isn't hectic enough and you dont have your hands full trying to keep the boat afloat today, youve got to somehow plan for the future as well. Far too often we get so busy just trying to keep our head above water that we all but forget to slow down and embrace the life changing magic contained in each invaluable moment we are privileged to live.
Were just too busy we tell ourselves. We dont have the time we reason. And not surprisingly, we frequently miss the magical gifts, lessons and delights all around us that we could have and should have seen and seized.
Learn from the past, set vivid, detailed goals for the future, and live in the only moment of time over which you have any control: now.
Hey, theres nothing wrong in revisiting the past, just as long as we dont stay there. After all, there are plenty of valuable lessons to be learned from our prior experiences. We should learn from them and then move on. Likewise, looking ahead to the future helps you see where you are headed and even more importantly, how you are going to get there.
But the most important moment, as a matter of fact, the only moment that ever counts, is the moment you have right now. That moment, the one happening right this instant, is the only one youll ever have. If you miss it and the opportunities that accompany it, they are lost and gone forever. Is that a risk you can afford to take, especially if you really want to make your dreams come true?
Miracles come in moments. Be ready and willing.
Life is and always has been about making choices. Where your life adventure takes you is left totally up to you and you alone. Your life can consist of one super charged, super sensational, super exciting moment after another or, on the other hand, can be comprised of nothing but dreary, lifeless, lackluster days, months and years.
And as simple as it sounds, miracles do indeed come in moments one moment at a time. When your moment of truth arrives, will you be ready
and then willing to grab it before it gets away? Will you choose a lifetime chock full of miraculous moments, treasured split seconds that unveil riches well beyond your present dreams and wishes? Or will you be so preoccupied with the daily grind, caught up in the hustle and bustle, that you miss out on the life you have always wanted to live?
James Baldwin said, The challenge is in the moment; the time is always now. And so it is. Right now, right where you are right this very minute, is the time youve always been waiting for. Regardless of what kind of hand youve been dealt in the past, this is YOUR time to make the most of the moment by making your life the incredible, phenomenal, absolutely awesome action packed journey it deserves to be.
And best of all, you dont have to wait for your ship to come in, because your moment is NOW! So why not live it for all its worth before it is too late?
The Bottom Line: When you live in the moment, cherishing each savory second of life, youll never have to worry about missing out on the best life has to offer.
