I'm a worry wart! I spend too much time regretting the past or fretting about the future - don't we all? Well, lately I've tried really hard to live in the now: to notice the beautiful trees when I'm driving to work, to give someone my undivided attention or even to stay focused on the tennis court instead of planning the rest of my day when I'm hitting the ball!
But it isn't easy to remember. So I came up with an idea: a Zen Watch bracelet. It's the perfect reminder to live in the moment. The first few days, when i looked on my wrist for the time and saw instead the word "now", it was a little disorienting. But for me, looking at a watch means I'm living in the future. And most of the time it's just a habit, and it really doesn't matter what time it is. Sometimes it DOES matter, and that's when my cell phone comes In handy! But mostly I wear my Zen Watch bracelet to focus me on the joy of living. I don't want to waste my time in regret or worry. I have a conviction that life is meant to be enjoyed whenever possible. And I believe the only way that can happen is by living in the here and now.
