"You can clutch the past so tightly to your chest that it leaves your arms too full to embrace the present."  
~Jan Glidewell

I was regretting the past and fearing the future.
Suddenly, I heard God speaking. "My name is 'I AM.'"

He paused. I waited.

He continued, "When you live in the past with its mistakes and regrets, it is hard for you because I am not there. My name is not 'I WAS.'

"When you live in the future with its unknowns and fears, it is hard for you because I am not there. My name is not 'I WILL BE.'

"But when you live in this moment, it is not hard, because I am here. My name is 'I AM'."

One of the most important lessons to learn in life ....is to be in the present moment.......and the second is to be aware of who we choose to be in that moment.....because whatever follows our..."I AM....."that is what we are.
May your day be filled with the joy of being able to say,"I AM happily in this  moment:)"
