There is only now that matters

“Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.”

This is a quote that I have to keep with me, always. I am not one for really dwelling in the past but I do dream a lot about the future possibilities. I find I can spend numerous hours just lost in my imagination living different possibilities. This is very handy when you are stuck in an airport for many hours waiting for a flight but can be a little misplaced when things need to be done.

Concentration and focus are incredibly gifts and often not valued enough. I would rather work with someone who is good but works hard than a genius who wastes his talent, for me there is no excuse for not, at least, trying to be the best you can at everything you put your mind to. Have a creative day.

  1. A wonderful post…as always…sometimes I find it difficult to just “be” in the present moment…I’m still working on that after all these years. I was absolutely captivated by the photo of the two wolves…the bubbles tickled the fancy of my inner child, and I could feel the holiness and solitude as the person knelt before the temple. You have such amazing and inspiring photos…thanks so much for sharing! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Yes I have to admit photographs of temples, mosques, churches etc are a dime a dozen on the internet but this one is so well composed that it just looks incredible. I think every adult looks at bubbles and is transported to a magical time, or maybe thats just me and you! ๐Ÿ™‚ Take care Alan

  3. I may need help but I don’t like that big HELP in my room.
    It makes me feel sad and helpless ๐Ÿ™‚
    But I want that faceless woman in erasable board
    I can make different faces as much as I want to.

  4. The big help is for an advertisement for IKEA. It s to promote the assembly service they offer so it is supposed to make you feel like that, don’t worry. I like it because I worked on IKEA advertising for nearly 10 years, but I thought this hit the spot about people having problems fixing shelves. I love the idea of the faceless women though! very nice.

    Thanks, take care Alan
