Living In The Moment?? Say What?!


I intentionally put a question mark after the title because I know there are many of you out there or your loved ones that find it difficult to “live in the Moment” or “Be Present”.  

Yesterday, my spirit was quickened to write on this matter.  I had a pretty dark day yesterday and it’s not the first.  I needed to make certain that my medications for chronic back pain and anxiety were leveled which is sometimes hard to do because your hormonal/chemical balance is a bit off.  No day is exactly the same.  Everyday, I focus on getting to the point of being present so that I can live in the moment thus taking any necessary actions to bring my joy and fulfillment for the day.  It’s a battle when you have chronic back pain with the anxiety that comes from it.  No medicine is exact so you learn how to balance them to find your joy each day.  I managed to workout even twice; weight lifting glutes  in the a.m. and a brisk walk in the evening.  The rainy gloomy day didn’t help and I know that was part of the dark day.

So friends, if you sometimes see a post that says “live in the moment” or “be present”, don’t get upset.  Understand that they are simply phrases to get you thinking of what it is that you have to do in order to accomplish that scenario.

Some people don’t have ailments so it’s easy for them to just spew out phrases that they know nothing about the struggle to live in the moment and be present.  It’s the people such as myself and any of you or others that deal with the battle daily or thereof.

Do what it takes irrespective of what others may think of you, it’s your life and you need to find your joy of fulfillment.  Otherwise, there’s no purpose in living.

Want to empower yourself or a loved one from titles of a woman that’s been through hell and back more than she can count?  A woman that knows what it’s like to struggle for balance each day and yet still find some or a lot of  joy in it?  Visit me at .

Be Blessed, Emma
