The future isn’t ours to know. But one thing is for sure, we’ll never know what the future holds until we know what the present holds.

What I mean is this: If we don’t attend to the present moment, we will be endlessly frustrated in our attempts to greet subsequent present moments (i.e. future moments).

Mindfulness is the umbrella term for the host of strategies that we can employ to help us become more aware of the present moment. Mindfulness offers us the possibility of experiencing the present moment in greater detail and with greater focus than we might otherwise be able. Through mindfulness we can experience the present moment more fully, see it more clearly, and savor it more joyfully. To the extent that we can sustain our mindful attention we can begin to be present for future moments as well.

    Hey Micha these days I’m going on the day with a new outlook on life. Not so easy but when I am able to I have such a wonderful feeling of sere nity wash over me. So what if I did it all before it’s a brand. new day If was never here before and shall never be here again. The dish soap bubbles were so beautiful and the water was nice and warm. So I knew that was all that I had at the time because bubbles don’t hang around very long. Not now, not before.but never again. Every fraction of a second comes and goes by without a chance So I guess I’ll just take the time to appreciate the changing of the guards and
    perhaps give that cute one a tickle!
