{monday's mantra}

I can't lie, some of my best ideas come to me in the shower. Like this week's mantra. I really do come up with something every week that epitomizes my life at the moment, and the same goes for this one. 


I'm sure I'm not the only one who has a problem constantly looking toward the future. I'm always waiting for that next chapter to start, for the next good thing to happen, when my life right now is absolutely amazing! Good things are happening, and I really don't want to let them pass me by while I wait for life to get even better than it already is. And now, as fall begins, I really want to savor the season, and the moment.

Such an important reminder! I have to tell myself this constantly as I also have a tendency to look towards the future without focusing on the present.


Hope you have an amazing week!

Agree. I strongly believe that being 'here and now' and appreciating what you already have is the key to happiness. Following your dreams, setting goals - it's all fine, but worth nothing if you don't master the art of savoring the moment.

You're so very right! I'm really great at setting goals, but I just won't reach them unless I work now, and am happy right now!

love this reminder. we're so often focused on what's next that we forget to appreciate the here and now. balancing ambition with gratitude is something i'm always working on. xo
