As we go through this holiday season…as we go through difficult times in life…it can be overwhelming to look beyond where we are at that one minute. So instead of trying to envision the best or the worst outcome, stay focused on right where you are. Enjoy your immediate surroundings. Notice the changes in scenery. Smell the smells around you. Stop and watch the beautiful sunrise or sunset. Savor the tastes of the food you are able to consume. Listen to the sounds and music that surround you.
You can't possibly imagine or predict what life will be like for you and those around you in the future, so you might as well stop trying.
Live minute by minute through the hard times.
