Life is an endless journey of ups and downs. If you never stop and realise how beautiful the present moment is, life will pass you by.
I know your next question,
What if the present moment isn’t beautiful?
I want you to stop thinking about anything or doing anything right this minute. All your worries and fears, keep them aside for a while.
Now ask yourself if at this very moment there is anything life threatening happening to you.
If your answer is in the affirmative, then do something about it. As Mark Manson said, “Happiness comes from solving problems.”
If your answer is in the negative, the moment is beautiful, but it is your mind creating the diversion.
Mindfulness is something which has to be practiced daily. Once you become more mindful, you will be grateful for every breath you take, and in turn you will become happier. Be grateful, be happy.
A real-life example :
When I started this blog I vowed to write only professional articles, which added value to someone’s life, not just random posts. Oftentimes I came up with ideas on what to write, but it took me weeks to finish the article. I then realised my mistake – I was waiting for the perfect moment to write the perfect post. Truth is, there is no perfect moment, neither is there a perfect post.
If you feel like writing, just start writing. Don’t wait for tomorrow, you never know if there will be one.
As I mentioned in my previous post, I used to motivate people on Instagram.
I’ve written a few self-help posts on this blog. I’ve now decided to start posting short motivational posts, like this one, more regularly.
I hope you like reading them, I appreciate you stopping by!
Thank you for reading! Stay blessed!
