Live In The Moment, But Make It The Moment You Want

There’s a Buddhist saying that goes something like: “As you walk, eat and travel, be where you are. Otherwise you will miss most of your life.”

And I feel like that’s a pretty good saying to live your life by, but only if you’re happy with where you actually are.

If you want to be at a certain level in your life, and you know it’s where you really want to be, than shouldn’t you try to get there as soon as possible?

Why be stagnant and relaxed, and take it all in, if you’re not where you want to be?

Why not hustle your fucken ass off, and get to where you want to be, so that you can begin to REALLY enjoy your life from that point on?

If you haven’t been there yet, then you have no idea what it’s like, and let me tell you, it’s better than you anything you can ever imagine.

So if you don’t like where you are, focus on where you want to be, and you’ll get there in no time.

And if getting there is happening too slowly, then you don’t want to get there badly enough.

  1. In my own opinion, I do not think these ideas are contradictions. Too many people think they are going to be happy…if….If this and this happened. That thought often cause a lot of misery in the present. It does not mean that we should not have goals, but life is more pleasant if we can be content with where we are, every step on our way. And those steps can be eager steps toward a dream, by all means, nothing is better than that. Feel strongly about your dream, picture yourself in it, but practice the contentment on being here and now also. Then, I think your dream comes much easier also:-)

    1. Great insight! Thanks 🙂

  2. I like this reminder to enjoy the moment…we tend to think about where we are going next or what’s happening next instead of focusing on the present. I agree with the message you put across…if you aren’t liking where you’re at, change it! Thanks for the follow on my blog. I look forward to reading your ‘About’ when you get the page up.;

  3. Reblogged this on Jcckeith.

  4. I agree, being proactive is the key
