Applaud yourself, yes you’re allowed
To praise your own gifts, to feel proud
You'd do it for others without any delay
So why not for you; why not start today

All Tick – No Tock
If nothing else, this that Daddy said
Will stay forever in my head

But all I can work with I will avow
Is the time that’s here, the time that’s now
What’s gone is done and can’t be changed
What’s coming is not yet arranged
So don’t waste your time unnecessarily
On what’s gone by – or what’s to be

It’s all in the Tick…there is no Tock

The flip-side of this is to spend all your time either in the future or in the past; times that just don't exist.
The past has passed, never to return, and the future is not here, therefore, it's not real. The only time that's real is NOW; the only moment that's important.
You may wonder why it is so important and what it really means to 'stay in the moment'. How do you go about living your life in the moment; always in the present?
The answer to all this can be found in the benefits of living in the moment - recognizing you're in 'the tick' and that that's all there is. By being in the moment, you...
