Be Happy Now

I found this quote today.

“Be happy in the moment; that’s enough. Each moment is all we need, not more.” – Mother Teresa

Every time I feel frustrated by where I am versus where I want to be, I am reminded that all I really have is this moment. If I focus on being what I want to be right now, then I don’t need to worry about whether I’ll make it in the future. I can only do it now anyway. The thing is, all of the now’s add up to my future.

Ilchi Lee recently emphasized this:
“A person who lives well for a day will also live well for a week. You need to live well for a week to live a good month, and if you live well for a month, you will live well for a year. This is how important your each and every day is.”

Even a day is composed of a series of now’s. I will begin now, and be now.
