Living in the Now seems to be a subject that resurfaces periodically in my mind and heart–don’t live in the future, enjoy the moment, all you have is right now.

I completely believe in the power of Now, in the importance of Now. I am utterly thankful for the Now.

Yet sometimes, I completely miss it.

There is torrential rain out there today; I can’t weed, I can’t run, I can’t even walk my dog. Everybody says how beautiful the storm is, but to me, it is only the reason  I am stuck inside. And that stinks.


And my attitude, it is getting stinkier by the second.


And the rain, it penetrates deep in my soul. And in my wet mess, I miss the moment. And in my soaked mess, I miss eternal truth. And in my drenched mess, I forget to live.

Where is the enjoying the moment now? My living life fully?

I want to pout today. Just leave me alone. And it’s like my soul chooses the rain. Inside and out.

I don’t want to remember the fact that I create my reality with my attitudes. But I do. With every single breath.

And the story on the inside, it becomes the reality on the outside. And the reality hits me: I am not missing my “now.” I am embracing it. I am choosing my pouting. How terrifying.
