“Today is the only day. Yesterday is gone.”–John Wooden
Learning to live in the moment is a bit easier said than done. However, truth be told we don’t have yesterday and tomorrow is not known. Oh, sure we have to plan ahead of time.
Being present in the moment is in my mind is focused completely on the tasks before me. Not worrying about what happened yesterday but total attention to the task-at-hand. Each day should be lined out with specific tasks that produce a result. Busy work is just that busy work.
In order to make a real change in our lives, we must produce a result from our daily routine. If you organize the day so that you have actionable tasks that produce a measurable result. Amazing things will begin to happen. For example, I enjoy writing more in the morning than at any other time. So as a task I set aside specific times of the morning to write. Not stopping until I am finished.
Moving onto the next task only when completing the current. If possible don’t leave off one job before you finish the current. Situations change but stay on task as much as possible. It takes discipline yourself. That change comes with good practice.
What happens to most of us is we get caught up in things that take away from what you can do right now. Worried about what is coming or worried about what has happened. If we’re going to fix anything the work has to come first. Sitting and worrying gets nothing done.
Don’t perpetuate problems solve them. Solving them is being present in the moment focused on what can be done NOT what has been done!

“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.”–Rabindranath Tagore
Perspective gives way to negative or positive thoughts. It’s our choice which side of the bench we sit on, positive or negative. Don’t give way to the negative even when that’s all you can see.
Negativity is a byproduct of the enemy wanting you to stay status quo. Yes, easier said than done. Many days I have to give to God, “I don’t see you, feel you, or understand why I suffer.” At this point merely surrender to God, let him know that you believe he has a way when you can’t see a way out.
The quote is right clouds can add a beautiful picturesque color filled Sunset to the end of the day. A dramatic wonder of God’s creation.
Right now I am working through a time where I feel apart from God. It’s not that I don’t believe, or have faith. It’s that at this moment I need to quiet my mind and try to hear what God is saying. I am struggling through and keep letting God know I’m here.

“Tomorrow is only found in the calendar of fools.”–Og Mandino
Being present in the moment! Are you present in the moment or looking forward? How much could you get done today if you did not worry about tomorrow?
I included it’s easier said than done to not worry about tomorrow. Especially when our lives are broken up into months, monthly payments and so on. How we get productivity vs. activity is to focus our efforts on today. There is no tomorrow if you do nothing today!
Organize your day if necassary hour to hour. You will be surprised if you focus solely on productivity how much you can get done.
If we focus on the day tomorrow will have brighter dawn to wake up to.
Have a blessed day!

“Turn your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind you.”–Unknown
We’re all guilty of looking back into the shadows of our lives. It’s within those shadows that you find depression, sadness, and loneliness.
Shadows hide from us the destiny that God has for us. God does not live in the shadows he lives in the light. Turn your face to the sunshine, find warmth in the suns embrace. Feel the warmth open up your dreams.
It’s much easier to look back for some reason. Many of us struggle to find the light. I would urge you this day to venture outside, close your eyes and look up to the sun. Take a moment to let the Universe know you are grateful.
It’s the simple things like this that build the foundation of your strength.

“Where there is no struggle, there is no strength.”–Oprah Winfrey
We all wish we had less struggle. Another quote that I will paraphrase you can’t become a good sailor in calm seas. For God to bless our lives with more, we must be able to handle the trials and tribulations of life with grace.
In my own life, I am challenged with many obstacles and hurdles. Past articles I have written spoke to this as taking a trip, and from time-to-time, we run into road construction. Sometimes we can see the development in front of us and sometimes what we need to understand is just over the horizon.
Learning to have the patience that the Universe is moving to clear our path. Faith that God has a destiny preplanned for our life. Let your future unfold without imposing your will. Do the work before you, have patience when necessary and hold unwavering faith that through the struggle lies your destiny.
