This week....I will focus on the magnificence of each moment


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting


So often we let our minds rule our destiny and, in so doing, we create a living hell for ourselves. Too easily we complicate our every-day tasks with negative thoughts. Thus, reality becomes overwhelming when our minds in this state take control of our lives.

To find the beauty that lies within each moment, we must step outside the inside of our thoughts, looking for that which is right in front of us.

It is like trying to complete a race before we have even reached the finishing line. Or it is attempting to leap over a hurdle when you can't even see it.

All our goals have a purpose and are realized when we lessen the chance of our stumbling on the path directly in front of us. Keeping our attention concentrated solely on what is at hand, while charting the course in the stillness of our mind, assists us in enjoying the beauty and grace of every step we take along life's journey.

    To find the beauty that lies within each moment is something that I really want to focus on for myself. It is very easy to let a day slip away and not enjoy one moment. Something is wrong there...

    Good advice on your post.
    Have a good day,
    Connie

    Some days we rush so fast through it that we forget how to live for the moment. Reminders like this always help us to get through. Great posting as always. Happy Sunday and soon to be a marvelous Monday!
