One of the main reasons most people do not have what they want in their life right now, is because they are not grateful for what they already have. When we focus on being blessed and grateful for the things we have in our life – it makes us think in the NOW… and we pay attention to the best of our life – this makes us feel good, and great feelings lead to great emotions. Gratitude drives emotions of belief and faith… and being thankful for what we have is Gratitude.
Being able to live in the ‘NOW’ allows us to appreciate what we have, in this age of distraction we are constantly worrying about the future or obsessing about the past that we let the present pass us by. We are always doing ‘something’, not many people practise stillness and clam.
“We need to live more in the moment. Living in the moment—also called mindfulness—is a state of active, open, intentional attention on the present. When you become mindful, you realize that you are not your thoughts; you become an observer of your thoughts from moment to moment without judging them. Mindfulness involves being with your thoughts as they are, neither grasping at them nor pushing them away. Instead of letting your life go by without living it, you awaken to experience.”
Gratitude is available the instant you bring all your awareness to this moment and really open up who you are to experience what is here. In order gratitude to be true and real, there must be a total acceptance of where you are right now – even though it might not be exactly where you want to be – by embracing it fully inside you, this allows you to accept life’s blessings and if you really experience this, your heart will open up to more than you could ever want or dream about.
How do you life in the moment?
