Sometimes I catch myself getting future focused. Writing, editing, and publishing a book means I have a to-do list that never seems to end. I’m driven to create and share. And it requires that I think ahead a lot.

However, a friend reminded me to “stay present ;)” in a note recently and it really resonated with me. It was a reminder to bring it back into the present moment and truly appreciate the beauty of the moments I am experiencing now. 

I was inspired to take a breath and dial it down. I was reminded that life is now. 

While it can be easy to think back on things that have happened, or focus on outcomes you are working toward in the future, the beauty of life is happening right now.

May you also be inspired to take a breath and live in gratitude for the multitude of blessings you are receiving in this moment. In this space of gratitude, may we also be inspired to share that love. <3
