Because I can get overwhelmed easily keeping different aspects of my life on track and headed in a direction I feel good about, I must visit them daily. For example: Staying physically fit is important to me, eating properly and exercising on a regular basis ranks high up there on my scale of importance. Often times, I can fall into a pattern where I’m being less than my “best self” and going through a day without a stitch of exercise in addition to not eating healthy. Ugh. Not feeling good physically or emotionally about myself, I can easily justify continuing down that path of toxicity.

This is when I borrow from the best ideas out there and apply them to my life. One of them is: One day at a time. Don’t worry about yesterday and how it went. It’s gone and behind you. There is nothing you can do about it now. Tomorrow hasn’t happened so focus on today. Stay in the present because today is a gift.

If I get too ahead of myself and worry about how things are going to work out in 3 days, I often stumble. Focus on the moment. Stay present. It’s the only thing that is real. The now. Live there.

And accept every minute of it.
