I was in the midst of a heated discussion with a loved one. Words said and feelings could be hurt. We've all been there.
Not wanting to cause more sadness, I stopped. I took a deep breathe and asked if all we have is Right Now, how did we want to feel?
That is the true beauty in any situation. (Argument or not)
What if we gave up the notion to feel we need to be right? What if we moved beyond the facts or opinions of getting to the point?
Isn't the real point about how we want to feel Right Now?
Feeling upset, angry or getting sad probably isn't how you want to spend your day? (week, month, year...etc.)
What if we decided that if all we have is right now and we want to feel happy, free, joy, (insert your word here); How would you do it?
What if we take this idea to all areas of our life and really tune into your emotions. Feel how you're actually feeling--instead of numbing it with alcohol, drugs, etc.-- and make your decisions from this place of forward moment to what we want to feel?
Can we take a step back and say "If right now is all I have, how do I want to feel?"
If we did, how would you feel?
