The Present Moment
Christmas is a time of giving a time when presents are exchanged and it has been said that the present moment is called this because it’s a gift. We have nothing except this present moment, the past has gone and the future doesn’t exist. We may not like our own present moment but we still need to be grateful for it. We have nothing else so we have to let it come and let it go and see where it leads us without stressing or fighting it because it’s all we have. Everything is transient even the symptoms of benzo withdrawal, they are leading us to a better place.
Your presence is yours alone so pass through it, find something to be grateful for in it, seek an activity to enjoy in it and breathe because you are alive and coming to a new presence of health and happiness. We only have the present moment.
