Live in the Now

So many people live in the past, letting their regrets, mistakes and past hurts carry over and control their lives. Others can't enjoy today because they are worried about their future, stressing over something that has yet to come or never will come. In essence, no one is given a promise of tomorrow and no one can change yesterday, but we each have this momemt- the present. Starting right this second- you can take a deep breath and realize how blessed you are for the air in your lungs, for a fresh new day and brand new opportunities. Take time to celebrate being alive. The old saying "Stop to smell the roses" reminds us to appreciate what we have right now. And remember, a smile to a stranger will not only brighten up someone's day but will warm your heart also.
