Understanding why you must not wait to live can be very difficult. Let’s try to make this simple. Living the moment is all about figuring out what would happen if you don’t enjoy the present. Not being in the present state is something everyone should get used too. Eventually, time flies and you will be somewhere else. People become the first and best victim of time. That is because the mind can be easily distracted into the future and pulled deep into the past.
You can spend hours tormenting yourself on why certain things happened. And, you can spend days trying to understand what the future has for you! In all these instances, you are missing the present moment.
Live Now, Live the Moment!
It is important to live the moment.
Always remember that there are plenty of blissful, peaceful and passionate ways to live. The final experience depends on your mindset. Not being able to wait is a personality. And, the ability to wait for a long period of time is another way of being. What really matters is how you handle every moment. In order to live another moment (which you could have been waiting for years), you are missing the present.
Use your energy wisely
Do you know that waiting requires lots of energy?
Waiting needs energy because it drives a lot of thought. What gets caught in our minds can consume plenty of energy. After all, these are things you wish for, plans you want to accomplish and dreams you want to full fill.
Some people misunderstand that “not waiting patiently” is a way of giving up on things. Well, this is not how the real world works. Not waiting is simply an act of diverting your primary focus. It happens when priorities change, and your mind (or life) becomes engaged.
Move with the flow
In life, it is very important to go with the flow. What is considered as the current moment of life cannot be relived. That is why you should flow wherever life takes you. The moment you decide to flow; you will see life unfolding in a different way. You will be prepared to learn from new experiences. In fact, your primary focus will start to change (but gradually).
The best way to live life is by stopping to predefined experiences. Wishing for a specific outcome will destroy life for you. So, sit back, relax and try to live the moment.
What happens when you stop waiting?
So, what happens when the mind stops waiting? Is this a healthy state of mind? Certainly yes!
As soon as you stop waiting for something to happen, you will become more aware, warm and relaxed. When you skip clinging onto certain things, people or situations, your life will gain more clarity. The process doesn’t deprive you of anything. In fact, it doesn’t push benefits away from you. Instead, it gives you the freedom to dance with life! Moment after moment, you will start appreciating the small things in life. This is a beautiful skill that has to be developed, if you want to live the moment.
