One of my least favorite phrases is "being in the moment." (Along with surreal -- but I'll save that for another day.) Even though I don't like the phrase, I like the concept because I don't know what tomorrow holds and yesterday is gone, there is only now. I want to enjoy today, now. I don't want to wait until things get better, until I am in a different situation. I want to enjoy NOW. I am never going to be any younger than I am right now (I will, however, be older by the time you read this). So, this is it.
Okay that moment is over, but hopefully you get the idea.
The only thing is that I have to remind myself. I have to remember to say to myself, "don't let this moment slip away; remember it; this is special." Otherwise, I don't and it's gone.
