Living in the moment is a hard concept (sometimes) for me to grasp. I'm trying to learn it from my dogs, cause they live in the moment, each moment being their entire universe. They live and love deeply cause it's all 'right now', as if there were no next moment and no previous moment. It's all brand new. Does that make sense? People who live with dogs will understand it, I'm sure.

It is sometimes hard for me to live in the moment, especially if I screwed up yesterday or have a 'trial' coming up in the future. But I'm working on it, with my dogs for my teachers.
