Focus, with Awareness, on the Present Moment


Unhappiness is generally a result of spending too much time regretting and resenting the past or worrying about the future. The key to happiness and success is focusing, with awareness, on the present moment.

Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.
- Aldous Huxley

Have you ever arrived at work after your morning commute, and noticed that you didn't remember a single thing you saw during your drive?

Let today be a day of awareness. Consciously pay attention to what is going on around you as drive, walk, do your business, or relax. Consider the world from the perspective of those you pass - the small child, the elderly lady trying to cross the street, the homeless person, the truck driver, the policeman, the executive in the big limo.

First accept reality, only then choose how to react to it.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
