For a while, it seemed to me that it meant I couldn't really dare dream for the future. Make plans. Have hopes and aspirations. But it doesn't mean that. Live in the here and now means we have to embrace the moments while hoping and dreaming for the "what's next". Don't miss life while planning your next great thing. Don't dream your life away.
Make those dreams, aspirations and hopes count now. Enjoy the hope and excitement of planning your future. Whether it's meeting a beloved friend next week for coffee, an upcoming holiday or a huge change in your life. The next day, month or a challenge for the coming year. Enjoy it. Embrace it. I'm pretty sure now that it's the journey that counts not the destination.
