Stop and take a look around. Take a sabbatical from routine life. Break away from the planning, goal setting and plotting away for the future. Look back at all that you've done. All that you've lived. Don't become complacent but pat yourself on the back. It's been a rough road thus far but its definitely had its high points. Its glory points. Be proud of your accomplishments. Recognize them - at the very least. You've made it this far, and today is just the beginning of everything else that is yet to come.
Now turn around and away from the reflection. Leave some reminiscing for another day. Take the rest of today to be present. Be in the now. Sink into the existence of your surroundings ... be with them. Tomorrow continue on with your methodic grind, but don't forget to reset and revisit days like today every once in a while.
