It is a delicate balance to plan for the future while staying focused on the present. Not just focused. Being truly present of the now, while having an awareness about the future, even if that's one minute from the now. That's what I'm working on today. Focusing my lens on now, this minute, taking in from every sense. Tomorrow has enough worries of it's own.

Cal, you have just spoken to me. Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts. I should start thinking about now and let tomorrow have its own, tomorrow.

I believe everybody has the potential to live a better life. Given the Opportunity, Education and Motivation ANYONE can become someone admirable. Nobody is a NOBODY, everybody is SOMEBODY.

Dear Cal,

Yes, most of us never think about the present. We always regret for the past and worry about the future. But the present, 'the now' that we have in our hands right now is so precious to make a cherishing past and a meaningful future.

Though we accept this theoretically. many a time we fail. We have to be reminded like this by someone dear.

Thanks for that.

Thank you for your sweet comments! I fail many times at it, but it is my constant challenge to be in the present. Being fully aware of the present leads to more awareness of past and future. Let us all have eyes to see. Michelle

No I don't have that book. I had seen this before your post and liked it very much and it somehow connected to your post. I should read that book as well :)
