My answer is yes and no. It really depends on us. The present moment can us be savoring the miraculous nature of being alive and being fully present in the moment or it can be us musing about what we want and rehearsing how wonderful it will be once we have it.  It can also be us just thinking about _______ you fill in the blank.

The present moment is the only opportunity we have to change or for that matter do anything. This moment is the only one that exists and how we use it is up to us.

Most of us spend our lives thinking about life instead enjoying the gift of living it moment by moment.

The gift of the present moment

It is really very simple to be in the moment. Focus on your breathing, smile and feel the gift of life coursing through your body. Feel your aliveness, fill your heart with love and then follow the cosmic breadcrumbs. Give thanks for the things that you want as if you already have them and then go back to focusing on your breathing and lean into the moment.

Thanks for the question Nicole. If you have a question leave a comment or send me an email. I love answering questions.
