Each Day is New and We Must Live in the Moment, by Suzy Newman

"Each day is a new life. Seize it. Live it."

-David Guy Powers-

What exactly is the author talking about?  To me, in the past, this quote would have meant, ”Forge ahead", “take the bull by the horns and make things happen”, “be positive”.  Today, though, it seems with the study and the work we do on ourselves here at The Estuary and The School of Healing Arts, each day is new and we must live in the moment.  Living in the moment means living where we are.  If we are in confusion about what to do, what we need, or what we want -- be with that.  Feel what that feels like in your confusion.  You have the thoughts running through your head and notice also how your body is feeling.  Like most of us, I have spent my life trying not to feel those uncomfortable feelings.  What I realize is, if I live in the moment and feel what I feel, I have no past to put any meaning onto the feelings.  The feelings just are.  If there is no message attached to the feelings, then miraculously the feelings change.  It always changes!  So, each moment is a new life. Feel it. Move through it.
