Today’s insight journey led me to the idea that while preparing for the future, we should not neglect to live fully in the present. Planning, as discussed in yesterday’s blog entry, is a very important and necessary part of effective preparation for the future. It helps us to ensure that we are on track to accomplish the tasks that we want and need to complete, provides us with a sense of order and organization, and oftentimes serves to reduce the stress level in our lives.
However, it is important that we do not allow ourselves to become so caught up in our preparations for the future that we forget to take the time to enjoy the moments that are currently on our doorstep. After all, once a moment is gone it cannot be retrieved. #lovebythedrop
