Live in the Here and Now

Enlightenment means taking full responsibility for your life. – William Blake

Life springs forth from the energy we create. Taking responsibility for your life grants you control over your present and future. Accept the thoughts you have and shine your glorious light into the shadows. In time you will increase your power to stand strong in the face of adversity. Stop blaming others. Do not allow negative experiences to restrain you. Learn from the hurt and rise above the pain.

Sometimes storms wash away our carefully constructed routes forward. Don’t take it personally. Issues arise that are beyond your control. Disagreements do not have to be about you. Do your best to remain calm and remove your ego from the equation.

Live in the Here/Now and make yourself happy. Do not rely on others for your happiness. Shine that glorious light of self-care onto your heart and allow that inner peace to be reflected in your smiling face. As Emily Dickinson wrote, Life is composed of nows. Do not lay waste to your eternal now with unhappiness. Be purposeful in your choices.

Confidently shape the moments ahead. See the shining positives of those around you. Gain patience through self reflection. Take responsibility through self-fulfillment in order to delight in your life-journey. Start today!
