Bold, Savvy and Now! This Present Moment Is Yours, In Delight

By Steve Wickham


"The clock is running. Make the most of today. Time waits for no person, Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That's why it is called the present." ~Alice Morse Earle.

There is no more important a fact than the above.

The fact of the present sheds new light on the moment, which lands us still on the cusp of time as we're creating history.

Yes, history-makers we all are. Today we're writing another page in our personal and interpersonal history books. How that page is written, and what its content is, is almost entirely up to us. Nobody else will control it as much as we will.

Yesterday - Nice, But Not Where It's 'At'
Whether we enjoy looking back or loath it, it doesn't matter. It also is a gift, but it's not the present, so it has a distinct disadvantage to us if we choose to remain there, or skip back there, unless for joy we go back with intention-that too is enjoying the present
But, if we go back beyond our own volition, we'll swap something we have possession of - the present moment - for something we no longer have possession of.

Tomorrow - It Probably Won't Happen 'That' Way
Down-payments on worry for what 'might' happen are simply buying stock of low or even worthless value. The currency we use is our valuable attention and our psychological state. This is much more value to us in the present moment.

Yet, we're probably so apt to worry that we either won't notice it or we'll feel useless to stop it. We have the opportunity to re-train ourselves back - repetitively so - into the living moment.

Being Present - Living Linearly
Time is a linear thing. The present moment always is. When we step back into the regrets of the past or the worries of the future we forego the linear nature of time. We don't flow with it.

Being present can be helped by focussing the senses. Actually seeing what we see, hearing what we hear and smelling what we smell will reinforce to us the beauty of life that stands apart from any of the other negativity we're presently facing. It can only augment our outlook. Circumstances are not all there is.

Can there be a better thing than living boldly, with savvy - and now - enjoying the present moment?
