This week I’ve been re-reading a book called The Power of Now. It is all about the importance of not getting ahead of yourself and appreciating the moment you’re living right now.
I agree with the things it says but at certain times in my life, living for the future has helped me a lot.
Sometimes getting away from the present is a good thing, after all.
And even now, even when everything is going good and I don’t need to get away from it at all, I still want to appreciate the little things more, but I don’t want to forget about my dreams and my goals, either.
I love them.
They are part of my happiness.
So. . . is living for the moment a wise practice or a foolish habit? Let me know what you think!

“Player has given a beautiful gift to her readers. I was very touched.” – Celia
