the power of NOWWWW. that’s all we got right? this moment, right here, right now. seems simple but it’s actually really hard for a lot of people to do. myself included. reading this book has illuminated that for me, but it’s even more impactful to read it in my current situation. i’m back in quarantine, full lockdown, for 14 days before joining “the bubble” for my next film. its teaching me to enjoy the moment. this moment right here right now. not what was… not what could be… not what will someday be… right this second. its reminding me to stay present in the “now” and take in the beauty around me, the people and things i normally take for granted because i’m too busy hustling and bustling my way through life. it’s making me appreciate what i have. what are you thankful for?
