101 Ways to Be Really Happy: Step #73–Live in the Now


Possibly no other idea has been written about or discussed by inspirational speakers in the past 2 decades. But the notion has been with us much longer.

I found this site of 146 quotes about living in the now. You can visit the site and vote for your favorites. Currently the top two are:

“Forever is composed of nows.”
Emily Dickinson

“What day is it?”
It’s today,” squeaked Piglet.
My favorite day,” said Pooh.”
A.A. Milne

“Life is a preparation for the future; and the best preparation for the future is to live as if there were none.”
Albert Einstein

Here is a homework exercise for TODAY. Find 4 quotes that inspire you to live in the moment. Paste them each onto an image that inspires you as well and goes with the quote. Then place them strategically so they will serve as reminders to you. When you catch yourself worrying about the future or regretting the past, then let one of the quotes and images pop into your mind to put you back on track.
