Living in the Moment

I'm not sure if I mentioned this in an earlier post, but I am currently taking a course called This Moment with Mindy Tsonas.  To be honest, I've had a hard time keeping up with the class and the inspirational daily posts.  I guess it's the time of year.  Last night I had a little alone time at Starbucks so I caught up a little.  I just have to share three of the ideas that Mindy shared about living in the moment:


if we sit too long in a past we can not change, we are not in the moment.

if we focus too much on things ahead and that don’t even exist yet, we are not in the moment.

if we react to what is going on right now with judgment and anticipation and emotive labeling, we are not in the moment."  mindy tsonas

Her ideas about living in the moment just really make sense to me.  Mindy is offering the course again starting January 31st if your interested follow the link to her blog wishstudio.

I will see you on Wednesday for the Artist of the Week post.  Meanwhile Live in the Moment! Stacie

Hi Stacie,
I wanted to stop by and let you know about a giveaway I am doing on my blog the next two days, and then I saw this post about living in the moment. I love the three ideas you shared from Mindy. It reminds of what people say - the past is history, the future is a mystery, and the right now is a gift, that's why they call it the present :)

happy holidays to you! If you'd like to enter the giveaway, just go to and leave a comment. It's for an art print and a Christmas Mix CD.
