Living life, by the moment...

Wednesday, June 23, 2010

'It's always the little things that make a big difference.' And I bet this isn't the first time you're reading it.

But, its true, down to every word that the smallest, most mundane things that we experience on a day-to-day basis become little pieces to a (soon-to-be-complete) jigsaw puzzle. Things like waking up in the morning with your loved ones next to you, following your daily routine that you may hate, love or miss one day or another, the everyday chatter with your friends and probably about them as well- what I'm trying to say is that it could be normal things- the forgettable things that we often take for granted- little things that make life worth living.

I always tell myself to 'live in the present' or 'savour each moment as your last' or 'live each day as it comes', but who am I kidding, I don't. We are currently living in an age that is so competitive with everyone tirelessly racing against each other, racing against time and for what only to be either rich, famous or more successful.

We are always thinking, planning, organizing the next step, stressing on what should have or shouldn't have said or done, making assumptions on what could have engulfed in our bottomless unworthy list of worries that we have no point or meaning in the end.

When all that time, what we should have done instead, was 'Live in the moment' (something else you haven't heard for the first time)- but come to think of it how many of us actually apply this overly clich├ęd phrase.

I doubt many of us actually live, act and breathe that waking moment of your life. By just beinghere and now and not there or somewhere around, we could actually live up to simply living life, for real this time by taking one step at a time, doing one thing at that time, relishing, retaining and living that memory as if it were your last. It's simple not that hard and I urge you to start now.

Some people drift through their entire life. They do it one day at a time, one week at a time, one month at a time. It happens so gradually they are unaware of how their lives are slipping away until it's too late. Do you want that to happen to you? Cause before you realize it, life is going to inevitably end and you don't want to regret that you didn't 'live life to the fullest'...


I am here. Are you?
