Here’s a great question to start off our week:

Do you let yesterday use up too much of today?

Somewhere I read that most of us spend all of our time either thinking about the past or envisioning the future – and I think it’s true of me in a general sense – how about you?

When I get back from an event – I review the details in my mind seeking to find things I could have done better, things I want to remember and ideas to use or share.

I also spend considerable time thinking about the future – like when I have a presentation – what I want to say, the stories I’ll share and the ideas I want to provide –

This is good to a point – however it means I must devote at least the same amount of time to now – this moment or I’m not living -

How can you focus on the now this week? On the now right now? It’s about living in this moment – which is the only thing you really have any control of – truly – and all things will improve –

Your relationships – being in the now or present with others is the greatest gift you can give –

Your health – you can only make wise choices in the moment you make them

Your finances – you spend or save each moment – right now

Your spirit – being grateful now – for this moment in time and all that surrounds you and that you enjoy now through your senses

Right now – I’m grateful you’re reading this!

 “The past is the only dead thing that smells sweet.”~Cyril Connolly

Remember you create your day by the way you think! Make it magnificent!
