Be Present

As moms, we have a tendency to always plan ahead because our kids have appointments, school, needs and extracurricular activities that have to be well thought out. We are constantly dwelling on the future instead of existing in the present. What I mean by that is we can miss out on the precious moments that may only happen once if we don’t stop and take the time to recognize and acknowledge it. I get it, we are busy boss mamas that have to think of the future for the sake of our children and their well-being. However, it’s not the best idea to always think ahead. I encourage you to stay present and in the moment, let things be. Visit your loved one, stay present. Spend quality time with your kids on the couch without modern day distractions, remain present. Look out the window, relax and enjoy the sunshine, be present. I believe a lot of our stresses will be alleviated if we just breathe the moment in and be present. Soak in the now like it’s a sponge and exist in the moment, not just in the future. Tomorrow is not promised, don’t wait until the next day to be in the present, start today, begin now. The future is too late to experience what the present offers us. Experiencing the present and making the most out of it will cut down on future regrets. No matter how busy you get, breathe and practice being present.
