“Realize deeply that the present moment is all you ever have.” -Eckhart Tolle
Heylo, it’s Teej, and today I want to dive into making the most out of your current situation. It’s easy to get down in the dumps with the pandemic going on. It’s been almost a full year but now is more important than ever to take a look at your current life and think about the positives. For me, I have been lucky enough to stay employed and work from home which cuts my commute time. With extra time at home, I get to spend more time with Amalia and Luna, my doggo. On the weekends we haven’t been going out as much, but we have been trying to make the most out of our free time still, whether it’s making delicious home cooked meals, going on adventures outside, trying something new, or playing board / video games. Looking back at it, it’s overall been a good experience and you won’t see me complaining but instead enjoying the present.
Now this quote seems to be a bit extreme but it’s all about living in and for the current moment. To me, this is not a ‘You Only Live Once’ type of thing. It’s always important to think about the future and keep it in mind. More importantly though, enjoy today and make good decisions so that you can keep growing day by day. You can’t tell 2020 TJ or Amalia that we would be writing daily blogs 41 days in a row but look at us, we do it and it has had a positive effect on the whole year so far. We are excited to continue the journey with everyone and I hope you have a great rest of your day!
Item 041 of 360+
For our Warm Wisdom Wednesday we have a fleece winter hat which was never even worn by Amalia. She kept it a while but never used it so we hope that now someone can use this item to keep warm this winter. This will be donated with the rest of the items we have gathered so far for the local mission.
