So often we miss out on the moment because we are too preoccupied thinking of other things, or stressed out over what we need to do, or too busy to even think at all. I have been there. I’m changing. Each day I want to focus more on how to stay alert and aware of the present moment – to DO. MY. BEST. George Bailey in “It’s a Wonderful Life” was so bogged down in the demands of life that it chiseled away at his self esteem, to the point that he didn’t think HE was worth anything living. He finally learned that “no man is a failure who has friends” through the love and awareness of the people who cared for him.
In matters of love, we often take for granted the tender sweet moments we share with our lover, they are gone all too quickly, but when we are present, they will be indelibly written upon our hearts. When we are alive in the moment, we are not the only one that will be blessed, but those around us will be enriched by our giving, by our awareness. It simply says “I love you, you are important to me”. Being present has the power to change and enhance our lives and the lives of others.
I challenge you to join me in being “awake in awareness” this holiday week. Let’s witness each act of love that is shared, and received, and relish in every moment, every hug, every caress and laugh!
Happy Holidays my dear friends! XOXOX
