Living in the Moment

Whether a holiday, age, or season, how often do we live in the moment and enjoy what’s happening in the here and now? There’s a Facebook group called Garden n country that posts seasonal photos, nature pictures, and a “Who remembers _?” such as “Who Remembers grilled cheese sandwiches with tomato soup?” (I DO!!! and I would love some right now… ).

When I originally wrote this post in April 2019 there was a photo of a decorated pine tree captioned ‘8 months until Christmas’ in my newsfeed. Curious as to the replies as  eight months seemed a long time for a countdown I read:

  • It comes fast enough.  There are other important dates between now and December.
  • We have spring, summer, and fall.  We’ve had a long winter and want to think about something other than snow.
  • Don’t rush your life away.
  • Pretty tree.

I was intrigued by the sage wisdom and the variety of viewpoints posted in the comments.  While I didn’t read all 1300 comments, the consensus of those I read was ENJOY THE HERE AND NOW.

The current month is JANUARY. It is WINTER. I am glad it’s not scorching hot outdoors. I’m glad I can wear my tall black boots and warm cable-knit sweaters.  I am not counting down the days until the next season begins.  I am enjoying the NOW.


What about you? What you are enjoying now? Leave a message in the comments.

Thanks for reading.

Hi. I’m Karen Furman, a home organizer and decluttering professional. Organizing is something I’ve been doing since 1st grade when used to straighten everyone’s desks. Fast forward a few decades later, I turned my passion for organizing into a business. Philosophy = Your home should be organized so you know where things are, to the degree that you feel relaxed and not stressed in your space. Method = A combination of Marie Kondo + FlyLady + my own style. YOU make the decisions. YOU decide what to keep and not to keep. I help provide clarity. Attitude = Positive, enthusiastic, non-judgmental
