Your life is now.

The title reminds me of John Mellencamp song with the same name...

"Your life is now, your life is now, your life is now
In this undiscovered moment
Lift your head up above the crowd
We could shake this world
If you would only show us how
Your life is now

Would you teach your children to tell the truth
Would you take the high road if you could choose
Do you believe you're a victim of a great compromise
'cause I believe you could change your mind and change

The cool part about this song is that it's true! Changing our minds about our circumsatances can make a world of difference.  So often we spend our time worrying about what will happen next, projecting into the future.  We forget that this moment, this inhale, this glance, this smile, is the only experience that we have.  Everything else is either in the past, a time that we can't change.  Or in the future, a time that doesn't exist yet.  So this is the only moment that truely exists, right here, right now, not somewhere else. Now, take a deep breath and enjoy this moment.

Your life is now... can you accept this life exactly as it presents itself to you?  If not, can you start today, to make positive changes to your thoughts to make it a life that you not only accept but also embrace and love to the fullest?
