the Four Agreements in our Daily Lives
"I allow myself to be present and in the moment.
How do we learn to live in the present moment?
I have finally found the way to live in the moment.
Whenever you feel that you are stuck in the memories of the past or dwell on
the negatives that were part of your journey simply stop, take a deep breath and
What have I learned from these lessons and is it in my good to continue on
this path or stop right where you are and look around you. I remember clearly
the day, in my early twenties and as a single parent I felt like the whole
Universe was closing in on me and very quickly I will add. I called my father
and whined to him about all the issues that were overwhelming me. Well, my dad
was always a man of few words and his advice was to go look out the window at
all the people walking in the street... they had many more problems than I would
Was I pleased with his advice? Not in the least... they were they and I was
me and at that moment I very foolishly thought my wise father had let me down.
Poor judgment on my part and oh so wrong!
Every thing is energy and once we realize that what we project we will
attract, plain and simple. E.g. you rush home from work and on the way remember
that you forgot the main ingredient for tonight’s’ dinner... a trip to the
nearby grocery store is in order. Not in your plans of course but it can’t be
avoided. Be guaranteed that if you are totally in a bad “poor me” mood you will
attract the one cashier who has had the same type of day you had. So, remember
my wonderful father’s wise words, stand back, collect yourself and be glad you
are able to drive to a store/buy food and go home and cook for yourself or your
family. You are now in the MOMENT and you will notice a little smile creeping
across your lips.
Make a habit of doing this, because one attempt to be in the present moment
can keep you from a lifetime of headaches and rushed days.
We will always have days that I call “bad hair days”...
Our moods will catch up with us but this only shows that we are human and
that is the wonderful part of this journey...we have choices.
Take care of what is in front of you and the Universe will do the rest.
