The Moment is..

So, how often have you made this statement. . ‘Those were the days!’ with a heavy heart?
 
 Surely more often than not. .
 
 The most amazing part of that statement is that at that moment we didn’t realise that we were living that event which we will someday look in the future and miss. At that moment it felt no big deal.
 
 This is another aspect of us humans who tend to either live in the past with memories, good or bad, or worry about the future which no one has control over.
 
 When I look back now, I remember having spent such wonderful moments with my family, celebrating birthdays, dinners and picnics. With my friends playing tennis, pool parties and bars. With my colleagues going for Off-sites, training sessions and office celebrations. But, I also remember at those times how I was not thinking that I will look back at them and miss them.
 
 It then struck me, how often have we looked back, thinking those were the best days of our life, not realising that the present will someday also be that past.
 
 We also have a tendency to think of doing something ‘tomorrow’ or ‘next week’, and before we realise it, the time and essence of the moment is gone. Simple things like picking up the phone to talk, sending a message to someone thanking them, an email, a personal visit, or, the almost instinct, writing a letter.
 
 I have often heard and personally gone through not paying a visit to an ailing relative only to hear of them passing away, so regretting that it would have taken just a little effort to have done what needed to be done, but instead will now mentally leave a life long regret for not having done that. 
 
 Ironically the only predictable thing about life that it is totally unpredictable. This not only stands for one’s life, but could be for anything, relationships, money, health, job, you just do not know what is taken away when. Here one moment, gone the next.

“We cannot predict the future

So we keep repeating the past,

But this moment..How long will it last”

Worry not about the future for what it may bring,
 Think not much of the past except for its learning,
 Live more in the present, not asking how,
 For what is most important… the MOMENT is NOW
 
 God Bless.
