I have always had a love/hate relationship with how quickly the present slips into the past. I get caught up in nostalgia often. I can forget how truly precious it is to be in this moment.
I had an interesting moment while on the massage table this past week. I was dreaming, I think… I was relaxed and became conscious of ideas connecting while knots were gently dissipating from my neck.
From the images that were presenting in my mind, I was left with the impression that people as a whole were getting fed up with “quick fixes” that “extend youth” or “melt away pounds.” I saw piles of these types of products being thrown out by the masses… and a phrase got stuck in my head. “It isn’t about living forever… it is about living forever, in this moment.”
Not only was the massage I received needed, but so was the message.
I have arrived at a place where I am starting to embrace the amount of decades I have participated in… and I am learning to honor what that means-
* If I take care of myself, time becomes my friend. My body/mind improves as my habits do.
* The time I have known some of my closest friends is a beautiful thing.
* Buying a house doesn’t have to be an option I reject… looking at how much time has passed and how much we have spent on renting, time can work in a positive way with having our own home.
When I realized that last concept… things started to happen. The universe seemed to step in and choreographed a beautiful rhythm that we flowed with, and that led us to…
Today, I found artwork at a local antique store that I want to hang in one of the bedrooms that will be my “art room.” (I am thrilled for that space.)
For me, it takes effort to feel as though time is my companion and not sprinting forward leaving me panting in the dust.
The balance I feel at this place in my life is something to hold onto and cherish.
This moment holds forever- embracing that is our choice.
