Right Now

Stop for a moment and calm your thoughts.
Let go of your anxieties and look around you.
What do you see?
You see a world filled with beauty,
You see a life filled with possibilities.
You see dreams being born, being nurtured and being fulfilled.

Yes, there are challenges.
Yes there is sorrow,
Yes, there is violence and hatred.
But more than these there is love,there is goodness, there is joy.

The future is uncertain.
And that means there's no limit as to howbeautiful and joyful you can make it.
Yet what you have right now is completely as it should be.
It is your time to live.
Think of what a precious thing your life isand how truly blessed you are to be experiencing it. Right now.

Right now, any anxiety you may have about the future is only an illusion.
Let it go. Let it fade away as the beauty and perfection of right now wash over you.
The best thing you can do for the future is to live with everything you have in the present.
Right now, you are in a position to create real, lasting positive value for the workd in which you live. How do you do that? BY FOLLOWING YOUR HEART.

By being the you that is really you.
You may have wandered away from yourself.
Now is the time to come home.
You know in your heart that you're here for a reason.
The pain you feel is that purpose, that reason for living, as it constantly aches to break free.
When it does, you'll be more alive than you ever could have imagined.
Breathe in the beauty around you, the beauty and richness of being alive.
It is your gift.It is your fortune.
It is your blessing.
And it is yours, to live, to experience, to fulfill.
Right now.

-- Ralph S. Marston

Why AnneThology?

Anthology means a collection of poems, short stories, plays, songs, or excerpts. My name is Anne, and this blog contains a collection of my thoughts, musings and writings (poems, short stories), some songs I like, plus a sprinkling of excerpts I find worth sharing --hence, AnneThology.

Did you know?

Anthology derives from the Greek word ἀνθολογία (anthologia; literally “flower-gathering”) for garland — or bouquet of flowers — which was the title of the earliest surviving anthology, assembled by Meleager of Gadara.

Look, what I have -- these are all for you.
