How are you feeling right now?

Did you stop to answer the question or did you keep reading? If you’re like most then you probably didn’t stop. Why not? Is how you’re feeling not important?

Stop for a moment. Take a deep breath and feel the air flowing through your nose and deep in to your body. Draw your lips back and feel the warmth of your smile radiate through you. Listen for your heartbeat. Pay close attention to the sounds around you. Direct your attention to your body, if you’re sitting then feel your body against your seat and if you’re standing then feel the weight of your feet against the ground.

In this moment feel no rush to move on to what’s next. In this moment let everything go and just appreciate the miracle of all that is. In this moment you and everything around you is perfect.  Your entire life is captured in this moment because this is the only moment promised to you.

“Be happy for this moment. This moment is your life.” – Omar Khayyam
