February 1: Time

Reminder to self:

Time is the most valuable commodity in existence.  You can’t get it back.  Yesterday is gone.  Tomorrow may never come.  All we have is now.

Make it a habit to BE in the present moment.  Learn to practice enjoying the little pleasures in the here and now.

The older we get the more precious time becomes.  Some of us realize we have been wandering about, aimlessly, and then begin to realize how much of our precious time we have wasted up to this point, and how much more we want to do, accomplish, acquire, and become, before our time runs out!

This life is too short not to enjoy each and every moment.  It is too short not to savor each and every experience.  Through the artful practices of gratitude and appreciation, we can learn to habituate the enjoyment of each and every moment and experience.

How can we make the most of this moment?  How can we make the most of this day?  I believe that we can make the most of this moment and this day by consistently thinking, saying, and DOING all we possibly can to enjoy and appreciate life to the fullest, while contributing to others, and through being the best possible version of ourselves, practicing gratitude, being compassionate, and letting go.  We can go to bed tonight exhausted, and with a smile on our faces, because we have no regrets for this day and we know we did our very best throughout this entire day.

Today I will live each moment of this day to the best of my ability by consistently thinking, saying, and DOING the things that will help me in any way to accomplish my goals, enjoy the pleasures of this moment, treat others with compassion, focus on everything I have to be grateful for, and to be the best version of myself I can possibly be.

Through the work and teachings of Eckhart Tolle, I have learned how to start practicing how to better let go and BE in the present moment, and how to enjoy the here and now.  It is a life-long practice, and it never ends-that is the beauty of it.  It’s all about the journey.  I highly recommend his book, THE POWER OF NOW.  The audio version can be found for free on YouTube.  I also recommend plugging his name into YouTube, and listening to ANY content available featuring this man.  His life story is incredible, and highly useful to anyone who chooses to listen to it.

goodinthehead is also on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and Twitter.  Follow me there, as well, for daily messages, inspiration, motivation, and reminders.  Please pay it forward, and share this, and ANY message, which may empower someone you love or may care about.  It is through adding value to others by sharing and spreading wisdom, that we become more valuable as individuals, and collectively, as a whole, we all become wiser.

Remember:  Mindset matters.  Character counts.  That which we choose to consistently focus on is what EXPANDS in our lives.  WE CREATE our personal realities.
