here, now

i am thinking: if in this moment, we are able to seize that thing that brings us peace, makes us feel such joy, it no longer matters what happened yesterday, or might happen tomorrow. right now, my joy is in my surroundings: the soft carpet under me; the air coming through the screen door; the vanilla-scented candle on the breakfast bar; the monotony of late afternoon. and so it is.

The joy in the day...I love it. It's everywhere, in the simple things. And you are so right..yesterday doesn't matter, tomorrow doesn't matter...here, now..that matters. So beautifully said.
