Time marches on, and both challenges and triumphs are either past or yet to come. Right now, all I have is now.
Sometimes, I remind myself of this on weekends, when I’m with my family, in slightly different words. Whatever has stressed me through the week doesn’t matter as I listen to my children laugh or cuddle with them or watch a show with my husband. What I have is family and love in the moment. That’s enough.
Does wonders for the stress levels most of the time, too. Not permanent decrease — whatever’s out there to stress me will still be there — but lowering the stress to a manageable level.
Now. It’s all I’m responsible for.
What are you grateful for today?
