FB Live - Be Present and In the Moment

[facebook url="https://www.facebook.com/yessica.maher/videos/10209584091052890/" /] Hot Mess Monday.  It’s about being present in the moment.  What do you do to stay present?

In sipping my coffee I get to enjoy the warmth and taste. I get to listen to nature outside.  I get to enjoy being and not worrying about how I look.  Being present means embracing how I feel because being alive is a gift.

At any given moment I’m given so many reminders of my value in the lives of others.  Being present means being okay with the way things are, rather than a past that brings sorrow or a future filled with anxiety.

The moments you take and make yours are the ones that matter.  When you offer your time as an empowered person, not a victim to your past or future, this is where you find your power. This is where you belong and are loved.

I had a transparent and authentic moment where I wasn’t hiding and fully exposed feelings I felt shame for.  I was met with acceptance and that open appreciation of my honesty was everything.
