Live One Day At a Time.

Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does. William James.

The most important moment is the present moment. But how to live like that?

Especially today in these crazy, challenging times.

Many of us live out our lives with one eye on the past, a past that’s already gone – and the other on the future, that’s not here yet. Choosing to live in the past or in the future can steal your todays and rob you of living to the fullest.

Living in the now, the present, takes character, courage, patience and humility.

Here are just five of many practices you can adopt to get you started:

  1. Live more simply. Cut back on what you don’t want and don’t really need. Live as lean as you can. Don’t let all the ‘stuff’ overtake you.
  2. Stay in control of your attitude. Strive to stay positive. It is easier to give in to societal convention and cynicism, but don’t. Nothing of any lasting value has ever been produced by a cynic.
  3. Be more empathetic. You’ll be amazed at what flows back to you when you do.
  4. Make a conscious effort to fully appreciate the ‘little things,’ the sights, sounds and smells, and the various emotions you feel and encounter each day.
  5. Love your work. If you don’t or can’t, resolve to appreciate the good things about it. Then get involved with something outside of work that feeds your soul and gladdens your heart.

Never look back. Live forward. No one knows what the future holds so just give each day your best shot.

One day at a time.

Stay safe. Stay strong. Stay connected. 

I hope to see you back here again soon. As always, thanks for reading me.
