Get off the Fence!

We often hear,

“Get off the fence and make a decision”

… as though being on the fence is a bad thing.

I’d like to encourage you to stop straddling the fence and take time to stay on the fence.  It is so easy to straddle the fence, with one foot in the past and one foot in the future.  The past frequently becomes something we use to judge our choices and decisions in a negative way.  The future can be filled with worry and fear.  As we judge how we’ve lived our life in the past and worry about how we’re going to live life in the future, we neglect to truly live today.

Take a moment on the fence.

Take time to get on the fence and be mindful of the present moment.  The present moment is what counselors refer to as the here-and-now.

Notice your surroundings, acknowledge you circumstances, be grateful for your relationships, and accept your life as it is.  Real living takes place in the present moment, so be mindful, get on the fence and choose to really live today.
