I enjoy recalling memories of the past, both happy and sad,
how these have brought color into my life
and helped me become the person I that I am today.
I still have my dreams and aspirations for the future –
these are the people and things why I would get up in the morning.
But memories are in the past and are no more;
they exist only in my mind and in my heart.
My dreams and aspirations are in the future and are not yet;
they exist only in my imagination and in my will.
The only reality I truly have and can work upon is the present,
my here and now.
Life is a great gift and it exists only in the present.
Everything I am and everything I have is but the present.
Sure, I got here because of where I was in the past
and it is from here that I will walk into my future.
But everything that happens to me happens here and now.
Here is the best time to be happy.
Now is the best time to be good.
I relish the present moment with deep gratitude and heartfelt thanksgiving.
I make this present moment count like it were my only moment.
This present moment is my eternity as well.
