Whether it's yoga or Oprah or Buddha or your favorite self-help author, a similar and consistent message seems to run through the teachings ---- PRESENCE. NOW. ATTENTION. AWARENESS.

It seems to be the key to happiness.  The more we master our mind, control the wondering thoughts and really, truly be present and appreciate the unique goodness of the moment, the more likely we are to feel content.

I'm happy to report that I'm getting better at that.  The anxiety is dissipating and the worry and anticipation is lessening.  Meanwhile I'm building my awareness that *right now*, not yesterday and not tomorrow, is pretty fantastic.

Coming in from a wonderful weekend, I feel calm, grateful and happy.
