Forever is composed of Nows

A quote attributed to the amazing poet, Emily Dickinsin.  I love this quote!  I heard it on a now defunct TV show called Forever.  It stuck with me.

Living moment to moment is a glorious way to live.  Each moment is a bubble and add all those bubbles up and you get forever.  That’s a might long time.

This morning, I woke up cranky, as it is cold by SoCal standards.  It got down in the 40s.  I had a comforter, 2 throw blankets on, and 2 layers of clothes in bed overnight to keep warm.  Cold makes me cranky.

But the cold, like everything else, is only temporary.  That “now” is fleeting.  It won’t be cold for long.  I turned on my space heater.  Boom.  The cold was gone.

Every now is temporary.  In the next moment you can change that thought.  And the next one and the next one remembering they are just temporary nows making up forever.

Your soul is forever.   My soul is forever.   I know it is colder in other places, but comparison is the thief of joy.  I don’t compare.  I compare the moment before and after, but that’s about it.  I do this even when I am cranky.

So my goal is to string along a bunch of happy nows to bring about that feeling I want to manifest, which is satisfied.  I love the satisfied feeling so much!  String along a bunch of satisfied nows and all you wish & desire will be there for you.

I love you and cherish you.  Yes, even you carrying shame.  Yes, even you carrying guilt.  All those feelings are temporary.  Find something to be proud of in that moment, string a few of those proud nows and you got something special.

Much love and peace!
