â€œThe future is not some place we are going, but one we are creating. The paths are not to be found, but made. And the activity of making them changes both the maker and their destination.â€
— John Schaar, a sociologist and professor emeritus at the University of California Santa Cruz
People live in the present moment only about 7% of the time. We are either busy regretting what we cannot change or worrying about a future that may never come in the form we fret over. In so doing, we miss the wonders of the moment placed right before us. Now is the only moment we really have. It is in consciously choosing the quality of this moment that we heal the past and string together present moments to bring to us a magnificent and meaningful future. Living now is the way to create the future we want. Life is a journey, a process of moments that we influence. Participating fully and willingly in the collaboration of quality present moments holds far more life for us than obsessing over a destination, past or future, forsaking now.
MY SHORT-CUT TODAY: In this moment I drop the veil caused by limiting beliefs and finally take on the knowing that I create the quality of my life in this moment. There is no â€˜thereâ€™ there. I embrace right where I am standing this moment to fully insure a happy future.
