In it...not for it

Okay, so this is a continuation of notes I took from the message Susan gave on Sunday. She talked a lot about a very specific phrase that I think really makes sense and wanted to share it with you.

Live IN the moment, not FOR the moment.

Susan made a really good point regarding this statement. It isn't a bad thing to live in the moment. It is kind of like I talked about yesterday and not living for the 'someday' but living for the 'today.' Whether your moment right now is good or bad, living in that moment as best you can is a good thing.

On the other hand, living for the moment is a completely different thing. When you are living FOR the moment you are living for something that will come and go. That moment you are living for will come and it may be a great moment, but it will pass and you will want another moment to live for. That moment will come and again it may be great, but it too will pass and the cycle continues.

The biggest point that she made that I think is that when we are in every moment in our life (especially the bad ones) that there is a bigger picture than just that moment we are in.

Live IN the moment, not FOR the moment.
