RCASA’s Tuesdays with Traci: Staying in the Present Moment

In Education on July 13, 2010 at 8:58 am

Often, one of our biggest questions is “What’s going to happen?” We may ask this about our relationships, our career, our recovery, our life.  It is easy to tangle ourselves up in worrisome thoughts.

Worrying about what’s going to happen blocks us from  functioning effectively today. It keeps us from doing our best now. It blocks us from learning and mastering today’s lessons. Staying in the now, doing our best, and participating fully today are all we need to do to assure ourselves that what’s going to happen tomorrow will be for the best.

Worrying about what’s going to happen is a negative contribution to our future. Living in the here and now is ultimately the best thing we can do, not only for today, but for tomorrow. It helps our relationships, our career, our recovery, and our life.

Things will work out, if we let them. If we must focus on the future other than to plan, all we need to do is affirm that it will be good.
