Playlist: How Are You Spending This Moment?

I wasn’t sure how I reached my destination but I recall the feeling of Summer whirling through my long wavy locks and the sounds of the traffic whispering by while the sun was setting on the city skyline. For a moment I felt weightless.

This weekend I took a little time off work to evaluate and reflect. I read a lot of success stories and dream very big so it’s nice to sometimes come back to reality and appreciate what I’m doing today rather than always looking at the future – waiting for the next amazing memory to happen. Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about where my life will be in 3 years, 5 years, 10 years, or more (and then I start online-shopping for wrinkle cream) no really… and I just have NO idea. I suppose that’s the beauty of today. You never knew what will come but at least you can always make this day, this moment, matter the most. How are you spending this moment? 

The next time you find yourself dreaming of all the places you’ll go, things you’ll see and memories you’ll laugh about later… remember that it all starts with today. Smile. It makes life easier.

Now I leave you with the playlist that is in the background of my thoughts during my early morning jog.
