Present Awareness


Too much time is spent

longing for tomorrow

or pining over what was

what might have been

or what still could be

Too much energy wasted

trying to reconcile the past

and worrying over the future

and what may or may not last

Gone too soon

is the promise of the present moment

spoken in the here and now

We turn and take a bow

blowing kisses in the wind

and drifting farther away from

what matters most

    Thank you so much, Audra, for this message. What a great reminder of being in the present moment and recognizing that yesterday is gone. Not to be forgotten necessarily, but to learn from and make the most of this moment we are currently in. I appreciate you soooo much! Love you!

    This is right on target! We so often are worrying about the past and the future that we don’t enjoy and cherish the “moment”!
