moment







When I am anxious it is because I am living in the future.

When I am depressed it is because I am living in the past.

I would prefer to enjoy the moment.....

Oh! Buttercup!
Where did you find THAT in NYC ?
I can't remember seeing one n Paris... but surely i'm not looking at the right places...

I think that you're pretty living in the present. Your blog is the living proof of that!

It seems difficult to enjoy the moment, but, may be, it's a real "recipe" to be fine ;)

Beautiful pictures to enjoy NOW !

Yes, here's to living in the moment. Something I haven't got the hang of at all, but wish I did.

I would prefer it too...but sometimes I feel inprisioned by which comes from the past, imposible to think on future.

likeschocolate said...

I so get this! When I was younger, I spend so much time worrying about the future. I missed out on the present.

Cookie Cutter said...

That is such a beautiful, dense, bright yellow! Thanks for the quote. It's a good reminder. Sometimes, we keep waiting for a perfect day some time in the future that we forget living in the present.

babalisme said...

This would be my first time seeing a buttercup flower! Heard about them, but never seen one up close. They are really pretty and..yellow! Now I know why they got this name.

Beautiful post as usual!

So do I..!!!
Yo también quiero vivir en el presente.. aunque a veces se haga difícil. Habrá que estar más atentos, más vivos, más despiertos!
Que tengas un lindo fin de semana!
Have a nice weekend..
