Living a mindful life is a goal that everyone should aspire to, and it takes conscious thought every day to achieve this goal. Change is the law of life. And those who only look to the past or present are certain to miss the future. Sure, we all have thoughts that weigh on us from our past, but what does this worry accomplish in our present? Nothing, and that is why being mindful is so important. Every day we experience change that will move us from one task to the next, and the steps aren't nearly as important as the journey itself. At the end of this life, you will not be focused on the small changes you made, but you will remember the paths that you ended up traveling down.
If you aren't focused on what is going on right now, you will miss out on where you are heading. The process of being aware of your daily actions will help you receive the image of your future more clearly. Spend today focusing on the now and what you hope to achieve in the time ahead. Through this thought process you will find more fulfillment in your daily life, and you will have an active role in your future.
