Pssst..Look around you..

Life is happening right this second, this moment.

This very moment right here, right now, is where you are actually ALIVE and living.

We spend so much time thinking and planning ahead that we sometimes don’t realise we have accidentally abandoned our current life and moved there.

Moved to a place that doesn’t have solid, earthy goodness filling you up and sweet, present, ecstatic joy slapping you in the face with a big happy kiss.

Planning ahead is important but be careful not to live there.

We lose precious moments on words and half sentences like these:


*As soon as..

Once I’ve/We’ve…


*When the/he/she..

Meanwhile those lost moments accumulate and turn into days, then weeks, months, years until one day you realise

These moments are my LIFE.

Go outside for a moment, really, get up, look out the window if you’re in a blizzard or heatwave, but LOOK out there, look at life, it’s happening right now around you and TO you.

The loose leaf, the sudden dot of a small bird lifting against the sky, the rustle or stillness of this very moment and your own heart beating in your chest, right now. THIS is living.

And it’s happening NOW.

Be happy in it. Satisfied even.. take one small moment if you will and just LOVE it.

Turn it over for a brief second and say out loud, in this moment, this very moment I’m alive and I am noticing it and feeling it.

Now breathe and breathe and breathe.

Life is brief, live it W I D E and DEEP you gorgeous, magnificent, amazing miracle!

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
