We’ve all experienced the anticipation leading up to something before. While anticipation is not necessarily a bad thing in and of itself, it can lead us to live in a constant state of longing or desire for the future. This can cause a disconnect from the present moment and keep us from enjoying, participating in, or simply recognizing its existence at all!
My focus with the Present Catholic blog is to foster a way of thinking and acting that helps people truly embrace the present moment. The word “present” can be used in multiple ways. As an adjective it encourages you to BE in this moment. As a verb it reminds you of your calling to GIVE. And as a noun it inspires us to CHERISH the gifts we are given TODAY. By living in the present moment we allow ourselves to better prepare for what the future will hold because we’re actively participating in its creation!
Through this blog, I hope you find encouragement to embrace each moment you are given by cultivating a healthy balance between anticipating the future and looking back on the past.
