If in this very moment you think about the past or the future, you’re letting this moment pass un-lived. For me it felt painfully “ouch” the moment I realized it and as a vastly empowering revelation a few minutes later.
When people talk about quickly running time and the change of seasons that happens unnoticed, it speaks volumes about how we spend our moment-to-moment-to-moment. The very second we slow down and feel this exact moment - that is the second we truly start living. And it has nothing to do with how busy we are - we can be busy and yet, very present. What’s needed is your commitment and observation and curiosity and self compassion and showing up for yourself religiously each single moment. Showing up for yourself, not for your past, not for your future because there’s no future without present you.
It’s not a rocket science and it’s not a thousand money costing self growth program, it’s the discipline and devotion to come back home to yourself. It comes through embracing your shadow self, reconnecting with your body and all sensations via breathing, sounding, moving, touching, smelling, seeing. It happens through being nakedly open and honest with yourself about everything: from your upbringing and conditioning, societal identities, bypassed and suppressed feelings, exiled emotions up to what reality are you choosing to co-create now.
Start by noticing how much of your second, minute, hour, day you are present. And take any tool from your pocket to expand it making this your daily practice. It can be meditation, gym, yoga, dance, nature, tea, shower, laughter, art, music.... It is simple yet it asks for your devotion.
If you’re ready - dive in or, rather, start your journey back home and be alive = thrive each single second. Your second.
