Being in the Now
“Most humans are never fully present in the now, because unconsciously they believe that the next moment must be more important than this one. But then you miss your whole life, which is never not now. And that’s a revelation for some people: to realize that your life is only ever now.”
– Eckhart Tolle
Where am I going? What am I doing?
If these questions apply to you, this is the time to pause and ponder how to un-break the box. We have to look into the future; we have to learn from the past yet are we forgetting the ‘Now’?
As one has to be in the box to come out of the box!! While remaining under the purview of ‘shackles of society’, in order to belong, one has to still carve a path for oneself. This happens if one can remember to appreciate the life we have been given and enjoy the moment.
While life is sometimes overwhelming and at time confronts you with doubts, take a breath. Stay calm. List down your achievements, your goals, desires, wishes. Reassure yourself that you are doing right by yourself and people around you. Then, life will always do right by you. With faith in oneself, live for today. Tomorrow will definitely be there but don’t lose today before it becomes yesterday!!
Patience and Perseverance
To persevere one has to have the willpower to carry on, no matter what. This comes only with patience. Patience with your self is foremost. Being confident of one’s abilities is possible if you are able to take constructive criticism and be willing to improve yourself on the go. The last word and the last laugh always belong to the person who is self-confident. And, patient!
Have fun experimenting
In order to create a niche path, one has to be ready to fail, take risks and experiment. It is fun to try new things and enjoy the exhilarating sense of thrill in following the unknown and discovering yourself. Did the path you are in come to you or you went on it? Similarly, why not try several paths and see where it leads. You would be amazed to re discover yourself. Trust yourself.
Carpe diem! Live your truth!
Let the available today shape your unpredictable tomorrow!
