reflection on what it means to be in the Here and Now
My animals help to remind me to live in the present. They don't think wistfully of yesterday or anxiously at tomorrow. Although creature's of habit, they pretty much live in this moment now. (Don't try explaining Day Light Savings Time to them!) Music can help elevate a down trodden mind, especially happy, bouncy music that makes you want to dance! And comfort food. Eating something that has warm, fuzzy memories of safety can make everything alright. ❤️
I try to remember that I am the incarnated one in a vast group of spirits and that they are all ready to support me. Ironically, it's usually in difficult times that I forget they have my back.
