all mixed up

Laying in savasana the other night... a thought drifted through my head... 

"why live for tomorrow when every tomorrow will become another today?"

It made me remember that I need to focus on living in the present moment. Whether that moment is a happy, sad, angry, hungry, sleepy, or irritated one, it is happening and I need to really feel it. I often look forward to things in the future: Friday evening, the summer, the wedding, etc... but soon those days will become TODAY too. If we cannot be present in the present moment today, it will be just as difficult to be present on the days and in the moments that we really wish we could be. So my goal for the week is to practice living, feeling, and experiencing each minute of every day (except when I'm sleeping of course!). Wish me luck, and feel free to join me in this challenge =) 

xo, allie

  9. allie, i love your top! fabulous as always. funny enough that this was the topic of your post since at my new job training today they played a video about having fun in the workplace and being PRESENT in the present moment. When you wake up, it is you that chooses to do so, you choose to go to work, school, etc and YOU choose your attitude that moment, that minute, that hour, that day. it was saying to always choose to be there, happy and present and you will get way more out of your day and especially your work day if you think this mantra through. SO important these days to remind each other about this when everyone is always on their phones texting, too busy bustling around to notice the present moment they are in. I think this is my fave post of yours so far! love you roomie. xoxoxo
