The Time is Now

to-everything-there-is-a-purpose
Nothing is promised. Not even time. The only thing we ever really have is Now – this moment. This may account for all of the grasping and scrambling and frantic worrying we do in our lives. We fear we have no time. But that never serves to get us ahead. Quite the opposite. It only robs us of the only time we’ll ever have – the present.

When we try to do or have it all at once, we soon lose momentum. So take your time and breathe. It is what we do Now that counts. How fully immersed are we in this moment? When out having coffee with friend, are we delighting in the exchange or thinking of the lawns that need mowing at home?  When we are mowing the lawns, are we savouring the scent of the freshly cut grass or wishing we were out having a coffee with a friend?  Too often we are distracted from what we are doing and wishing our time away on thoughts of next next next.

Slow down. Know that you have time. Trust that it is alright to advance towards your dreams at a gentler pace, that supportive doors will open for you when you surrender control to what is. Let go. Refrain from trying to control outcomes or attempting to do everything at once. Instead, choose one thing to do and do it well. Yes – it is important we dedicate time to working on our dreams, yet we must also balance this with time for play and laughter, alone time, as well as time spent with loved ones and friends.

Today, breathe and enjoy the moment. Have faith that there is ‘a time to every purpose under the heaven.’

In love & light,

Hayley xx

  1. This is beautiful Hayley and such a simple yet profound message that’s so important. Enjoy the now because none of us know what’s around the corner and if there’ll even be a corner! And don’t we all just waste so much time worrying instead of just living in the moment and accepting, as you said. I’m guilty of this too so thank you for the reminder my dear friend. Enjoy the rest of this glorious day. xo
