We tend to focus on our past mistakes and dwell on the thoughts of: Am I good enough? Am I worthy enough? What could I have done differently? And if I fixed that one single thing, would the result have been better?
We find ourselves fighting our inner thoughts and we don't live in the present. We need to remember we can't change the past but we can live in the moment because sometimes I focus so much on the future that sometimes I don't slow down enough and enjoy the small milestones in my life.
We need to start asking ourselves... " What am I doing today to live in the moment- seize what today has brought my way- and do the best I can with what life has given me?" As I strive to answer this question myself, I'm sharing some tools I've learned to incorporate to help me live more in the present.
- Be determined to live in the now
- Don't judge yourself
- Focus on what's right in front of you
- Work hard and play hard
- Stop making excuses
