Be Where You Are

“As you walk and eat and travel, be where you are. Otherwise you will miss most of your life.”
–Buddha

I know this to be true; I’ve missed so much because I’ve spent the majority of my life daydreaming about the future and ruminating about the past.  These simple words (that aren’t simple at all) hold the key to happiness and contentment, I think, and in the new year I am going to strive to live this way.  Happy or sad, I need to be in the moment.
