In the rush of everyday living, life itself can be neglected!
The stories we tell ourselves about what we should be doing, and why we need to hurry can rob us of a sense of all the moments where life really takes place. The devil is in the details – it is the quality of the small moment-by-moment actions that determine how much happiness and contentment we can find in living.
If we do not pay attention to what we are doing and feeling in the the small moments of our lives, the big moments will not feel as precious either. Life is not a race. Slow down a few microseconds before embarking on the next detail and in doing so, become more present.
There is no present in life that is as valuable as that of the present moment.
