"Many of us tend to think that the grass is greener on the other side. Often, we get to the other side of the fence and find that this is not so. The motivation to change our lives comes from our desire to be happy. We are often so busy focusing on our pursuit of happiness that we miss the joy of actually living in the moment. Our desire to have happiness in our lives is a desire for a future state, not for the present. We become so consumed with all our problems in the present that we miss the precious beauty of the moment. Sitting on the beach eating ice cream with your best friend is a moment of happiness. Appreciating and showing gratitude on a daily basis is experiencing happiness at the moment. Helping those in need brings us joy and happiness. Living in the present moment means no longer worrying about what happened in the past and not fearing what will happen in the future. It means enjoying what’s happening now and living for today. Choosing to live in the past or the future not only robs you of enjoyment today, but it also robs you of truly living. The only important moment is the present moment. How Do You Live in the Moment? Remove unneeded possessions, smile, fully appreciate the moments of today, forgive past hurts, dream about the future, but work hard today, and many more. This is what living your life at the moment is all about – don’t miss these moments because you are too busy focusing on your pursuit of happiness."
