I came across this photo on my phone last night. It’s my son when he was about 8 years old. What I see in this picture is pure joy, gratitude and being mindful of the present moment.
As adults, we forget to stay present in each of our moments. If that sundae was placed in front of me my thoughts would be racing ‘ should I eat this? it’s so many calories, but I deserve it, but then I might regret it, and so on.’
Sometimes we just think too much about our present moments.
This photo is a reminder that we should treasure each moment we experience in life as it’s a gift. Whether it’s spending time with people we love, time spent in self-care, or even eating a sundae.
Life is too short to spend overthinking the everyday.
Find joy, gratitude and mindfulness in each of your moments.
Where can you find it today?
