Yesterday, several of my therapy patients talked about the gifts of the here and now. Here and now, I’ll tell you some things they said:
- Being in the here and now — letting go of worry about the future and regrets about the past — increases confidence and inner peace.
- Focusing on the here and now should be called “anti-therapy,” because conventional therapy focuses on the past.
- Staying in the here and now is difficult, because human minds naturally drift to the there and then.
Are you with me, here and now?
Here and now are forty-one photographic gifts from yesterday, when I was there and then during a gorgeous, unseasonably warm March 9 around Boston, Massachusetts, USA:
Through the gifts of blogging, I can tell you that this house in Lexington, Massachusetts …
… is where my ex-husband and I got married in 1988, which resulted in the here-and-now gift of my eighteen year-old son.
Here and now, can you see how this photo
… offers the gift of a musical choice, honoring the Beatles and George Martin (who passed away two days ago)?
Here and now, I would appreciate the gifts of any comment from you.
Here-and-now thanks to those who heal in therapy, to Lexington Massachusetts, to the Beatles, to George Martin, and to you — of course! — for being here, now.
