Hi there my beautiful lovelies! Hope you guys are doing well and staying safe. Today, I want to take the time to talk about taking living in the moment. I will talk about enjoying the moment.
Life in Auto-pilot
We live our life in auto-pilot. I am guilty as well. Always so busy, with no time for anything. My auto-pilot life include breakfast, work, shopping, eating, and sleeping with little time to breath. However, what the past few days and even the past two years have taught us is that life is too short. Before you can blink it can end. I have been thinking about that a lot. When my uncle passed away on Valentine’s day this year, I couldn’t stop but think about the last time I spoke to him. I still read the text I sent him just less than two months before. However, what gets me the most is that due to auto-pilot life I have not spoken to him for a month before his death.
Trust me, I do try to live intentionally and practice living in the moment, but life do get in the way often, and before I knew it, even if I want to, I cannot talk to my uncle anymore. I think of those times with him and his loving advises. Yes, I do have small regrets about not calling him sooner and giving my gratitude. We all have those mistakes, if after the two years of uncertainty, I have succumbed to the auto-pilot life. Now, we all have seen the horrific massacre of innocent children in Uvalde. I can’t stop crying and feeling the intense pain.
Living in the Moment
My dear lovelies! We tend to take life for granted. We always think we are too busy to stop and take a deep breath, hug our loved ones, express our gratitude towards and ourselves and our loved ones. What that does at the end is life full of small regrets, and what ifs. Living in the moment take lots of practice and dedication but the reward is amazing. According to the National Association for Continence Health Blog, studies show that people who focus on seeking pleasure in the moment are happier than those who are focused on the past. And those that take the time to notice more of the small things and enjoy the simple pleasures of life are happier and often more productive.
Nonetheless, I couldn’t have practiced living in the moment without first acknowledging the past. What each of my experience and surrounding has taught me. It’s impossible to just live in the moment. In order to appreciate the present, we need to acknowledge the past and learn to let go. Our experience makes us who we are. Whether the recent events in the world (pandemic, war, shootings) or my life (family illness, and deaths) I can’t learn to appreciate the present moment, without acknowledging the past and learning to let go. Yes, I have lost my uncle, and even loved ones in the pandemic, and seen the chaos that is happening around me, but what that does is that it allows me to appreciate what I have.
Now, every morning, I spend couple of minutes outside, just taking a deep breath, and enjoy my garden or just the fresh air, and take a moment to acknowledge the past and focus on express towards the current moment. I am grateful to for my life, my loved ones. I take the time every weeks to talk with my loved ones and share some good moments. If the encounter is not pleasant, I acknowledge it and let go as life is indeed too short to hold on to negativity.
My dear beautiful lovelies! Don’t dwell on the past or regrets. Acknowledge their presents and let go, and take a deep breath and express gratitude for the present. Take the time to express gratitude towards yourselves, and your loved ones. Hug your loved ones a little tighter. Just remember, life is too short and there might not be a tomorrow.

CAUSES CLOSE TO MY HEART

I consider myself fortunate to have good health, a full-time job, and a roof over my head. However, there are still so many people who are struggling to put food on their tables. Please join me to help those who are struggling. If you have good health, full-time jobs, and a roof over your head, please join me to help those who are struggling.

America’s kids need us. The coronavirus is closing schools nationwide, and millions of vulnerable children are losing the school meals they depend on. For some, it’s the only food they’ll receive on a given day. We have a plan to feed kids, but we need your help today to continue our work to ensure every kid gets three meals a day. You can click above to donate to mygofundme page donation going directly to the organization, or you can click on the direct link to the site.
PLEASE DONATE ANY AMOUNT YOU CAN AND SHARE THE POST WITH EVERYONE YOU KNOW.
Manna Food Center, a nonprofit organization, strives to eliminate hunger in Montgomery County through food distribution, education, and advocacy. Millions of children go to bed hungry in America every year, sadly it’s worse now! Today, 14 million children regularly miss meals — three times more than during the Great Recession and five times more than before the pandemic
Many parents have lost their job during the pandemic. Sadly, that shows no sign of stopping. Your donation can bring relief to the millions worried about where their next meal will come from. It’s even worse for Latino and Black families, whose rates of nutrition insecurity have spiked to 25% and 30%. In the world’s wealthiest country, this is unconscionable.
Even before the pandemic, the U.S. Department of Agriculture estimated 37 million people in America struggled with hunger and nutrition. The Centers for Disease Control reports 76% of people killed by COVID-19 had at least one underlying condition, most of which were diet-related. Diet-related diseases also fuel skyrocketing health care costs, which rose from 5% to 28% of the federal budget in the past 50 years.
Let’s make the world better, kinder, brighter. Every dollar you give will create real change. $1 will feed 5 hungry children here in the US, but $1,000 will feed 50,000 starving children overseas. Be the good in the lives of many by giving right now.
Your generous support will help me continue to bring content to you.
