Live In The Moment: Now!

"Learn from the past, set vivid, detailed goals for the future, and live in the only moment of time of which you have any control: now."~Denis Waitley

The quote above pretty well entails everything I have been pondering lately...  I certainly have learned from my past.  There are still many things I have to learn, going in for this operation is going to be a test for me, in a good way.  Right now when I don't feel like thinking about certain things or I don't like the way something is going in my life... I do things so that I don't have to think or feel... like eating unhealthy food.  I won't be able to pop out to a store and by a chocolate bar or junk food of my choice.  

I am going to have my food limited to healthy, I will no choice... let's see how I feel over the next six weeks and I am hoping I will feel like continuing on with it.  I also will be getting plenty of rest, something I clearly don't give my body enough of... Sleeping enough would mean I was clear minded and I would have to deal with whatever is going on that I don't want to deal with, lack of sleep leaves me in a fog, less time to think. 

For my present, I have only one thing... Live in the moment: Now!

For my future, I am setting goals and sticking to them... I am going to continue to blog daily, I am going to get the divorce kit so that I can start my divorce (I heard it is very detailed, now I will have the time to focus).  Next I have two people I am going to go zip lining with and most important as soon as I heal and start feeling better.  I am going incorporate exercise into mine and Valentina's life.  I want to run a 5K by the end of the year.  

All of these detailed goals are fully achievable... I also have some dreams and there is truly nothing wrong with dreaming... otherwise we would never grow beyond what we would ever believe possible.    

I cherish my past, I accept my present and I dream for my future


  1. Yes all these are most definitely achievable. I love the introspection in this post!

  2. I recently read another blogger's post (Grey) regarding "living in the moment." She reminded us that in just a second or two.. in the blink of an eye, the moment is past. And then you must live in an entirely new moment! Does that mean you give up the life you led just a second before?

    Perhaps it is too literal a translation, but living in the moment is terribly more difficult than it seems on casual proclamation.

    Either way, I very much admire your goals for the future and look forward to following your journey as it continues through this life.
