People wonder how it is that I can cherish the moment of right NOW.
I admit it’s a learned behavior, especially in my current living conditions, back on appeal here at M.D.C. Brooklyn.
I’ve found that the key is learning to put life in the proper perspective, a perspective from which you have a choice to choose.
That’s what determines the conditions of our lives anyway, a series of choices that attracted the situation we find ourselves in NOW.
So NOW, what choices are we making?
I choose to be positive and optimistic regardless of what’s going on, and I’m faced with monumental challenges that don’t always appear to be working in my favor.
But I have this secret power of faith that I’m always able to rely on in difficult times.
Fears and worries of future events, only hijack the essence of the presence of NOW, cutting one’s self with a double-edged sword.
I choose to be happy and grateful, living in the moment of NOW because in all reality, NOW is all we have.
If I allow my mind to wander with all the should of’s, could of’s, and what if’s, I’d stress myself out, losing all the peace and poise I’ve learned not to take for granted.
I entertain a certain mental attitude of gratitude, that conforms to my spiritual system of belief, and choosing to cherish the moment of NOW positively, is a determining factor to the unfoldment of the conditions I attract to the NOW of my future.
There is an impelling creative force at work in our lives, directed by our thoughts and emotions. The choice to choose in this moment of NOW, expresses to the world who you are. If your not happy with that choice, in that same instant of NOW you can change.
The choice is always yours and always has been. Yet, when we find ourselves in undesirable conditions, accepting responsibility for our bad choices is hard to admit.
But NOW that you know, NOW you can do better, and there’s no more perfect time to apply what you NOW know then NOW!!
