Present tense is where we ought to be.

Many people walk around selling happiness but they never really taste any of it on their own. I’ve recently tried & discovered on my own that the reason why we sometimes have good or bad or unhappy moments or days is all because we’re not living in the present. It’s probably one of the hardest things to do, buy if you really try, I’ve found out that it’s one of the things that in the end has made me experience true inner peace.

One of the easiest ways I have truly felt that I’m here & now, is when I take deep breaths. When I once thought that true love is what gives you happiness (I am not saying this is false) but I remembered something F. Scott Fitzgerald said: “…and in the end, we were all just humans, drunk on the idea that love, only love, could heal our brokenness.” And even though I believe it does, I also believe that our mind is as powerful as our hearts and the love we can give. But the first love we should give away is to ourselves.

So, breathe in and breathe out. Remember when you had hard times and now they’re just lessons or memories that we’ve already overcome. We should trust that we’re able to survive anything that comes our way. Happy? Of course we’re happy. Look at what’s around you, a wonderful life and a wonderful world. Things could be worse. In this exact moment, we’re healthy, happy, breathing, and living. Let’s embrace it. We’re in this precise moment because this precise moment is where we’re supposed to be. Not ahead thinking about the future, and not behind lingering on to memories of the past. We can’t control neither tomorrow nor yesterday.

Today, right now… that’s all we have. That’s where we should focus or energy on. Our happiness, our smiles, our love, our everything.

…and you’ll see, we’ll all float on okay…
