Life is More Than a Journey – It is an Adventure

21 Feb

I’m sure you’ve heard this statement before, Life is a Journey. In fact you could even consider it a cliché. But it’s true. Life is a journey. But I like to take it one step further and call it an adventure.

I believe that there are three types of people in the world. Those that live in the past. Those that live in the future. And those who live in the present. We each know people in all three categories, and as you read on, you may even recognize yourself.

For those living in the past their belief is that their best days are behind them. They are either reliving their past glories, experiencing once again those good and positive feelings about themselves. Or, they’re besieged by nightmares of past mistakes, errors and failures. Feeling the shame and the embarrassment over and over again.

For those who live in the future they see glory, wealth and fame just over the next horizon. All they need to do is just slog through another day. Hoping and wishing that they’ll win the lottery, or some other stroke of luck will happen to them. Or, for some, they live in fear of the future constantly worrying about when the next catastrophe will occur. They fear the future because they fear the unknown.

And then there are those who live their lives now, in the present. Here you’ll find the smallest number of people. A very slim minority.

People who live in the present know that their life is a gift from God. That they do not live in a chaotic Universe where things just happen. They know each moment is powerful. For it is in the moment when they create their future by asking their higher power for what they want. Knowing that their asking coupled with their faith and expectation will create in their life all that they desire.

Stop and take five minutes of your present and ask yourself; Where do I live; in the past, in the future, or in the present moment?

Then remember – it is never too late to start creating the life you want. NOW!

With Love,
