“Embracing this instance is all about being present.” #bgdtcoaching.
Though it is easy to think today is just a copy of yesterday, by embracing this instance we can appreciate the richness and uniqueness of the moment.
Of course, society likes to underline notable events throughout the year. Partly this is driven by commercial interests, and partly by the desire to maintain or promote our cultural heritage.
Individually, how we go about embracing this instance is oftentimes conditioned by how we feel towards the matter in question, as well as our current sentiments. Feeling indifferent or disinterested in what is going on around us, we could easily choose to ignore external goings-on.
Embracing this instance, on the other hand, could be a way of acknowledging we are part of this reality. Liking or not liking everything here is not the issue. We may appreciate events around us, participating in the moment if we wish, without getting wrapped up in things too much.
Letting go of yesterday and setting aside tomorrow, we give ourselves the opportunity to live fully right now. So yes, embracing this instance is all about being present.
Other perspectives are surely worth exploring with regards to embracing this instance. To share your input, please don’t hesitate to leave a comment below. For now, thanks for reading this ‘Embracing this instance‘ post.
