Live In The Present Moment

Episode #3 – The present moment is the only thing that is real. Too many times we worry about the future or thinking of the past.

Strive not to judge, everyday and every situation is beautiful, accept it for what it is and be thankful for the opportunity you have each day.

Some days the skies are clear and other days the skies are cloudy. One is not better than the other, it’s just different.

Surfing is a big part of my life but once my kids were born my days in the water were drastically cut down. Saturday morning was the only day I got to get in the water and surf.

But I realized that I had to learn to appreciate every second I was in the water. It didn’t matter to me if the waves were big or small, if it was sunny or cloudy, or if it was windy or calm, I was thankful just to be in the water for an hour or two.

I constantly hear other surfers judging the moment, saying things like “Wednesday was a lot bigger” or “next week it’s suppose to be really good.”

It’s funny because although I spend much less time in the water these days than I use to, I find that I enjoy my limited time even more.

Remember that there are two sides to everything, a yin and a yang. Each day has a night, and if something is the best than something must be the worse.

Try to appreciate whatever you are experiencing at the moment because there is beauty all around us.
