Life is a magnificent journey, a wonderful gift that some of us are taking for granted. Often, we are waiting for extraordinary things to happen, and we forget that an extraordinary life is made of those little moments or actions lived or taken daily. We are waiting for the right time or for great opportunities to occur. Any meaningful moments are made of quick and genuine decision or small and painful steps. We let time pass by waiting for the perfect moment. There is no perfect moment, opportunities are created by taking a risk, putting dedication, enthusiasm and giving our best. Those great moments are created by seconds, minutes of appreciation, sometimes tears. The perfect time does not exist, but only right now, this moment matters. We are waiting for tomorrow which is not promised to us. We close our eyes and we realize that it’s too late, the time has passed us by, and we are swallowed by regrets. Let us grab this moment with our heart, let us enjoy this instant and make the most of it. Let us travel and see the world. Let us help and lift one another and make the day count.
Only this moment matters
It is important to always have a positive outlook on life and I always appreciate reading all your optimistic messages on your blog. I think several people are stuck on in a dark place and like to dwell on the past so so I think reading your blog can help shine light on their lives. Thank you for your positive message and I look forward to your next post.
Thank you so much for your kind word Melody. I am a firm believer that we are on this earth to help and support each other. Sometimes, one kind word, one gesture can change someone’s life. Let’s be the light that will shine the path of those in darkness. Let’s bring hope to those that are doubting. Let’s keep spreading positive energy.
Absolutely pleasing to the eyes, edifiying to the soul, Now that some of our Elected in DC are engaging in all out war on the poor, the voiceless, the elderly, your spirituality , and caring words remind us , of the beauty in being our sisters and brothers keeper.
Thanks for your comment. It is a must for me to learn something new and give to others on a daily basis. If my words can lift someone, I reach my goal. Being there and helping others bring joy and happiness to me.
Couldn’t agree more. More people need to think and act as you said above. It would make everyday must easier. <3
Thanks for your feedback. We must remind our loved ones to always be thankful and enjoy the moment. Have a blessed day.
I love this outlook on everything. We definitely take things for granted sometimes and it’s important to slow down and take time to appreciate what we have. I like how you also comment that we have to create our own opportunities, they don’t always just come knocking on our doors!
Hope you are having a great day. Thanks for your feedback. Marjie
Yes! Living in the moment is the key! Too often we are too busy living in the past or even in the future – now is all that matters and when we learn to recognize that and have joy in the moment, our lives will improve.
I’ve seen so much at work, that I have learned to enjoy the now. Thanks for your feedback. Marjie
I absolutely love your outlook….you have such a sense of happiness about you. We have to live in the moment and enjoy what life brings us…
Thanks for your feedback Shell, hope you are having a lovely day. Marjie
This is so true! So often we find ourselves saying “I’ll be happy when X happens” or “I’ll do this when X happens” and we are wishing our lives away. We need to stay in the moment and find our happiness in the everyday.
So true Jessica, hope you are enjoying the moment and wish you a wonderful holiday season. Thanks for your feedback. Marjie
Thanks for sharing this thought. This is an eye opener for me, as I am always rushing and thinking about tomorrow. I will make sure to enjoy this holiday season and live in the present moment. L.
beautiful message! i love the book ” the power of now” and what you wrote is something we all need to remember daily- only right now, this moment matters! make the best of it!
Ananda, thanks for your feedback. “The power of now” is such a great book, I had to pause several times to appreciate the content. Have a blessed day. Marjie
I could not agree with you more. There will never be a “perfect time” for anything. Appreciating and being happy with what you have in your life now makes a happy person. Making the right moves to make your future better is what can secure that happiness and anything in addition to that is a bonus!
Pam, thanks for your feedback. Have a great day. Marjie
I totally agree. Sometimes taking risk is better than sitting still, waiting hopefully for some luckiness. Opportunities only come when we seek for them so let’s do what we want and not regret it!
Thanks for your feedback. We must seek new opportunities and regardless the outcomes learn from them. Have a great day. Marjie
That’s a positive outlook on life ( which is always beneficial and helpful in making the best of it ‘being happy’) Life is so precious and fast that doing what you love and living with a good heart is important! love your view!
Eloise, thanks for your feedback, I hope you are enjoying the moment and wish you a wonderful holiday season. Marjie
Looking at things how they happen in the moment is definitely important! I love that you have this outlook on life.
Thanks Deb for your feedback. Have a blessed day. Marjie
Girl! Yes! I love that last paragraph so much. Let’s do more of what makes us smile. 🙂
Glad you like it Jessica, have a wonderful holiday season. Marjie
Yes. Life is just so short so we should all do the things that makes us all smile.
I believe in positivity and living in the moment as life is short. <3 Great post, have a wonderful start to the new year!
Thena, thanks for your feedback. Like you, I am a positive person and take the time to enjoy each moment. Have a wonderful holiday season.
Living in the moment truly is vital because time just goes by soooo quickly. I do my best to live in the moment and relish every aspect of life, and honestly, I feel better for it!
I am so pleased to hear that, Gigi.
This is so what I needed to read! Do more of what makes you happy and smile..from witihin! Loved the read!
Share more 🙂
Thank you, Preeti.
You are so right, if you wait for the perfect moment you’ll wait forever. It just doesn’t exist!
Exactly, Chef Dennis, we must create our own moment, and simply enjoy every second.

What a beautiful reminder! Every time I look at my son, I am amazed to see the passage of time and I long to make time stand still before he becomes a teenager. It’s so easy to get lost in the to-do lists and work stresses.
So true, Rachel, thank you.
Knowing we did our best is so important. Sometimes it’s hard to feel that way especially when fighting depression but taking the time to still enjoy the moment makes a difference.
You have such a great perspective. Love this. Thank you for the encouraging words….it really made me think.
Thank you, Holly!
Easier said than done but a positive outlook is indeed very important for the quality of our lives Marjie! This was the perfect reminder, and perfect timing as well, push harder and keep hoping <3 beautifully said!
Thank you, Chelf.
Such a good reminder to live in the now. We tend to be so busy looking ahead that we miss what is around us now.
This is such a great reminder post! And I couldn’t agree more, thanks for sharing your thoughts!
Lisa, thank you so much for your feedback.
Definitely thinking about things in the present is the best thing. You have to focus on where you are and not all the noise around you and what happened before.
Absolutely, David, you said it perfectly. Have a wonderful weekend!
I try to live in the moment to experience things as they are happening. I feel there is a time and a place for everything. Sometimes you need to just experience the moment and then other times are when you plan ahead.
This is a great way to approach life, Nikki, thank you!
I couldnt agree any more to what you said about the outlook towards life. Life is too short to waste it thinking about the past or worrying about the future. The essence of life is in the moment.
Absolutely, Vyom, well said.
Such a fantastic post! Glad I found it via Facebook. Thank you for the reminder to always be present.
Thank you, Tolu!
