This week I was facing some struggles and I made a decision to stay right in the moment. When my thoughts wandered to “what am I going to do?” I brought them back to the present moment. How was I in this very moment? I had a roof over my head, food in my cupboards, a car that ran. I was not hungry, I was not in any danger. I was safe in my home with plenty around me. That is when gratitude happened. I was so caught off guard that here in the moment with all the wonderfulness of my life in the span of less than a minuted I had gone from sheer panic, to full blown gratitude. True gratitude where I felt it. I wasn’t trying to have an attitude of gratitude, I wasn’t trying to feel better by making a list of all the things I was grateful for, but I chose to be very present to the moment I was in and that there was absolutely no lack in that moment. That’s when I began to dance.
Are you “Dancing in the Moment?”
