The present is a gift

I remember when I was quite young seeing Family Circus cartoon in our Sunday paper that said “Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow is not yet here. That’s why the present is a gift.” Although I didn’t completely comprehend the meaning at that time, it has stuck with me through the years and deepened in understanding. Staying in the present moment is where true peace and clarity is experienced. Living in the past can bring regret. Living in the future can cause anxiety. Ground yourself in the beauty of this moment and all of the blessings around you.
