In The Present Moment

Quote For The Week

On the rare occasions when I catch a TV talk show, it seems I usually hear one of the celeb talking heads hold forth about being in the present... living in the present moment. This (along with being your authentic self) is a popular topic on talk shows.

This philosophy of living fully in the present moment isn't something new. Most happy people discovered this secret long ago.

Back in 1926, Dorothy Dix, America's highest paid and most widely read female journalist of her time (1861 - 1951) said in Dorothy Dix: Her Book: "I have learned to live each day as it comes, and not to borrow trouble by dreading tomorrow. It is the dark menace of the future that makes cowards of us."

Ms. Dix who was actually journalist Elizabeth Meriwether Gilmer dispensed advice on relationships,what they called love and marriage back then, in columns syndicated in newspapers all over the world. She had an estimated reading audience of 60 million.

Takeaway Truth

There's nothing new under the sun, only new ways of expressing old truths.
