No Greater Time Than The Present

present moment

How many times have you heard this line, “There is no greater time than the present?” I’ve heard it a ton over the years and I like it. I can finally click with it… or jive with it. When I am consciously aware of the space I am in at an exact moment, I feel alive.

Did you hear me?! I feel ALIVVEEEEEE!!!!!!! I don’t know why, but I kinda had a picture of Jack Black in my head when I said that. Something he would say fo sho.

I have not always been one to check in or even know how to stop thinking about the past or worry about the future. But once I got interested, it became life changing. And it’s a journey like everything else. There are times where I am in the moment more than others. There are times when I let life rail me like a train going 100 mph. But there are also times where I can tell I need more space to relax and unwind. It’s allowing these times to unfold and savoring the experience that keeps me on my feet. I won’t have all the answers and I won’t feel my jolly ‘ol self 100% of the time, but I am human. And I am movin’. And hell, I am even groovin’. And I am definitely rhyming… did you catch that?

I think life is about the ride and enjoying every minute of it. Do you feel that way? Do you do things on a regular basis that bring you kick ass joy? Because you should. You definitely should.

Here’s to letting go of the past, forgetting about the future for a bit, and living in the moment!! Can I get an Amen?!? What will you do today that gets you savoring the moment you are in? Simple question. I think I will turn on “The Way You Make Me Feel” by Michael Jackson and dance my bootay off in the living room. Cause that’s the room for livin’… how ’bout them apples? 😉

Today’s post is a part of the Fit Dish link up with Jill Conyers and The Fit Switch. Join in on the fun and let us know how you live in the present!

    a little Michael Jackson can get a smile! Nicely done!

  • Haha that is the perfect living room dancing song! It’s been wayyy too long since I’ve had a dance party at home…

    Over the last couple years, I feel like I’ve lost some of my spontaneity. No better time to get it back than today! I will have to crank some tunes when the toddler wakes up and have a dance party with him! There’s no better way to live in the moment than a dance party!
