5 Minute Friday - Present

Linking up with Lisa Jo and the girls for 5 Minute Friday.  5 Minutes, no edits or re-writes and love the ones that came before you.  Topic: Present....

Go...

My mind drifts back to what was a lot.  There are things in the past that I miss so desperately.  And then I look ahead into the future, what might possibly come my way.  Both things forsake what is actual, what is in fact, my life.  The present.  When I look so far ahead or turn around to reach for what I know, what was a certainty, I get lost.  Right here, right now, has purpose.  The present, our gift.  Because the present is kind of like a gift.  Sometimes You.LOVE.It.  It is the best present ever!! And then there are the other times where it isn't exactly what you wished for, but the more you look at it and let it sink in, you realize perhaps it's more useful than you first realized and you grow to love it in a different way.  Living in the present is a gift.  Don't forget to unwrap it....

Stop.

  4. Thanks for this. I'd never thought of how in looking back or focusing on the future I get lost, but it's so true. Today I want to let the present just sink in.
