Mindful Monday: Living in the Moment

When I was first finding my independent faith in Christ I remember battling with phrase, "Live in the moment." I was reading in the Bible that we are not to live for what's on the Earth, but for what is to come in Heaven. And as I've grown older, I've found this to be even more troublesome, at times.

I graduate from college on May 12. A little over a month from now I won't live half a mile from my closest friends and I won't be a 3-minite car ride from campus. While I'm excited to complete the undergraduate chapter of my life, I'm struggling to find peace in the fact that I can and should live each moment to the fullest.

While I'm going to remain responsible and a good student for the next five weeks, I am going to live a little bit more. Maybe I'll stay out later, or get extra sleep, but what I want most is to find the beauty in every moment. Even when the moments are bittersweet.


Ps- Thank you all for the positive thoughts and prayers on Friday. The decision was difficult to make. While it's hard to see the benefits now, I know that in the end I would have a lifetime of regret up my sleeve had I not taken action to help a friend.

  2. I went to bible study tonight and we discussed living for that eternal life. I feel the exact same way as you, trying to enjoy every moment before graduating, and actually have that quote on my mirror to remind me the positiveness of living in the moment!

  3. I completely agree with the "live in the moment".

  4. Love this quote!! I try my best to embrace every moment!
