Now


Do you ever feel content with now? That feeling where there is absolutely no room for nostalgia? (Well, except for this morning when my sister and I left the house to go to work, together in the lift/elevator, and it reminded me of our schooldays, that was one nostalgic moment)

Because I feel like I am at that point in my life when I am so happy with the here, and the now. I don't miss being younger, here is good. Here is perfect.

There is this comfort here that just came so naturally, so instantly. Like eyes you can look into and never quite reach the bottom of the sea that is their wilderness. The wilderness that is the perfect lace of past delicacy and a hope for a future lightness. And a hope; a hope for eternal happiness.

It leaves me in awe.
It leaves me so much in awe that I become speechless.
And it take a huge amount of awe for me to reach the point a of loss for words.

Usually when I'm really immersed in work and have a lot to do.

There is nothing better than to be happy with 'now', the moment you're living through right now, this moement in time. There is always so much to be greatfull for and remembering that can give us so much inspiration and strength to keep on dreaming about future yet to come :)

I rated this as "loved it" because it's really refreshing to hear. So many of us are lost, there's nothing wrong with feeling that way but it's rare to read of one so content in the 'now'. I'm quite happy at this stage of my life but I confess I do look back often, and am not without my regrets.

I love to see you feeling this way Sara, makes me very happy. :)

I love this post. I always try to be happy in the here and now, but for some reaosn it's always been really hard for me. Even when I'm having a great time and loving life, I'm always comparing it to the past, or looking forward to what's next. Sometimes I even waste time thinking about how I'll look back on now. It's crazy, but I hope to someday get to where you are!

keep on inspiring :)

that moment when (when of my) new born babies was first handed to me, that moment after the pain and longing, and pain! of childbirth, that moment we touched skin to skin...that was my moment.
