NOW!

Yesterday, the weather was perfect. The skies were blue, the waters green, the sun shone bright, and a cool breeze blew. Yes, it did seem picture-perfect as I enjoyed every minute of my lazy afternoon watching little children jump joyously, splashing water at each other in the lake. Nearby, their parents watched them lovingly, enjoying a beer or two, and basking in the sun, wearing the bare minimums. Couples held hands and kissed in the water while I sat there on the grass with a smile on my lips, thanking God for a wonderful day.

And then it happened. On my way back home, I began to dread Monday. Monday blues are something that we all commonly experience at some point in our lives, whether or not we love our jobs or whatever else we do for a living. I began to groan in my head at the thought of waking up to a shrill alarm clock at 7:20 am, dressing up to go to work, juggling my way through horrible traffic, and going through boring training seminars for half the day. For dinner, I stopped by at my favorite cafe to eat a healthy sandwich and enjoyed it thoroughly as I bit into the greens smothered with feta cheese and a mediterranean dressing. The moment I set foot into my car, my Monday blues returned.

I came back home and turned on the TV, a luxury that I have now begun to afford after my school days. And yet, I could not focus. I kept glancing at the clock, wishing bedtime never came. However, as hard as I tried, I was unable to change my destiny. The clock did strike midnight. My eyes did get droopy. I did fall asleep. And I did get up on time to go to work today.

As I write this post, another Monday has passed by. I now await the weekend and am counting my days till Friday. But then I wonder, what is the point? In waiting for the Friday, I am losing out on all the experiences of joy that I could have encountered today or might tomorrow, and the day after, and the day after that too.

In waiting for the future, am I spoiling my present? Did I miss out on experiencing the full joy of hearing from someone I had not in ten years today? Did I miss out smiling genuinely when the cashier at the gas station told me that I looked beautiful today? Did I miss out on the great sunset while driving back home on Sunday evening?

Some of us are truly living in the future with the hope of making it better without realizing that in doing so, we are losing out the opportunity of enjoying an already good present. We have to live in the NOW. Not in the THEN. They don't say "tomorrow never comes" without a reason.

True...its better when one lives in the moment..specially when the moment is good rather than assuming n dreading abt a day that is ahead!

n wooow..u have a lake near ur place:) That must be beautiful..we have a river behind my new aptment..tht we can see from the balcony n i love it!!

Ghost Particle said...

probably its all about hope of a better tomorrow that makes ppl live in the future, rather than try to make good of the present.

At the same time, living in present gives the satisfaction of being alive. we dont know about the future.

living in the future came because of the milestones we set, how we commit our paths in life. without that, we dont have to yearn for another day. not setting one, means walking blindly.

too many possibilities.

bt i agree, the present means everything, every single second of it. it answers questions, it creates joy, or sadness, it touches, it connects, it tells you what is real.

:)

APOO said...

True. You should enjoy the NOW, but have an eye on the future. Dont spoil the NOW for tomorrow, but have an eye on the tomorrow such that for the NOW, you dont spoil your tomorrow.

Its a balance one has to maintain but have the scales slightly tipped to the NOW side.

Ghost Particle said...

and here's that C&H seems to tell so briliantly about life, and the present...atleast from what I think:

Arjun said...

Just every once in a blue moon - i go through this whole thing of dreading the future - for no apparent reason.

Then I get the shivers.... and it takes some hard concentrating to get back to the present - the NOW and - relax!!

Vinz aka Vinu said...

wonderful post sol..

felt good..yeah, most of us forget to live in 'PRESENT' anticipating the pleasures in 'FUTURE'....

what we dont realize is that building stones for FUTURE is laid in the 'PRESENT'...

I know few friends of mine who keep on cribbing on all week days and then at the end during the week days also they will have to work..!!

ur post is inspirational and definitely i am going to forward this atleast to one or two..

keep writing..!!

Hemanth Potluri said...

i think the moment is very imp sneha..as u said u enjoyed ur sandwich ...u could not enjoy it if u wer thinkin abt tmmr or abt the things....being wat ever u r at the moment helps u a lot yaar..and abt the Monday blues...i was in big trouble with my previous post which i deleted....

there is the NOW moment wer u can have a lots of things...happiness at now is always cool....and angry u dint invite me for the sandwich ;)...lol...


tomorrow never comes

s kal ho na hoo..live for today...lets think abt tmmr wen we put our foot there...

Lovely post..

urs..hemu..

Gauri said...

Good one Solitaire :) - as always.

This post reminded me of a quote by Corrie Ten Boom "Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow ; it saps today of its strength."

Sums the whole thing up so effectively. But then again, it is a notable human tendency, is it not - to worry about the future to worry about tomorrow - rather than enjoy the present to its fullest.

I worry - about rather inconsequential things too. And this tendency of mine has made me try and introspect.

My question is : Is worrying a form of coping mechanism that the human mind itself has devised, albeit unconsciously ? A coping mechanism that is designed to maybe partially shield or protect oneself from potential harm.

As in saying that if one anticipates something negative, one has the time to garner strength or any other force there may be to try and cope with the negativity.

And about the question you asked me in the comments section of your earlier post Solitaire - you tell me, do you think I am ? :D

"Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called the present." - KUNG FU PANDA


"Life is what happens when you are busy planning for it " - JOHN LENNON

So many such quotes are so true in our daily life...but we dun realize it...

but dun worry World cant end today...coz its already tommorrow in Australia!! :P

DreamCatcher said...

Most of the times we are only interested to reach the destination rather then enjoying the whole journey!!
lovely post!

lukkydivz said...

yet to experience those onday morning blues, u know am making the most of now :P i enjoy sleeping eating and chatting :D


why dont u take a break?

Keshi said...

This is a beautiful post with a very valuable message.

I really really hope ppl will try and get the real meaning behind this post other than just acknowledging wut u so beautifully said. It's not that easy to live for the moment...cos we humans dream, hope, plan alot.


There used to be a time when I worried so much abt Tomorrow, next week, next year, 10yrs down the track etc etc. Then something happened that changed my outlook on life forever. That made me realise that it's really no point fretting abt a future time that I dun really hv any control of. All I hv control of is right NOW. So I learnt to live in the moment, for today...right now. Cos that's all I've really got.


Wonderful to realise that u look at life the same way! If more ppl had this kind of wisdom, we'd hv less unhappy ppl in this world.



Keshi.

Solitaire said...

@ Lukky,

What do you want me to take a break from Divya? A job that started only two weeks ago?

You make the most of your sleeping, eating, and chatting!!! These days will never come back!

Solitaire said...

@ Dreamcatcher,

Thanks!! On Sunday, I did not even want to reach the destination. I just kept thinking about it!

Solitaire said...

@ Prakhar,

Haha! So you are putting a lighter spin on this post by using Australia time to confuse me!

Love the quotes!

DreamCatcher said...

ha ha.. :)
agar monday ko amir tumhare office aat to bhi kya aisa hi feel karti..;)

bently said...

Yes Offcourse SNEHA...take life as a cigarette(I'm sorry if I spelt it wrong since I have spelling dislexia....lol).Enjoi the first puff then the second puff and on and on and on.If u think that the cigarette will be over then u won't enjoi the puffs.Because the ultimate reality is that it will get over(just like life).You can take another cigarette but you won't have another life....Live to the fulliest...God Bless

PS: The above example is for smokers like me who just smoke one a day,so chain smokers don't be offended.

SMM said...

Hey Sol. There was a time I used to have Monday blues too right from Sunday afternoon cuz of my crazy boss.Thankfully we got him to quit.

And now I really enjoy my work. I wait for the Monday to come and before I know it the week is over and its the weekend again :D

Ekta said...

aah..firstly..i envy u!!
having a nice day at the beach is something I am yearning for!
And well to live in the present is to actually live...to live for future is anticipation!
So..to live or not to live...is the endless debate we always have..

Ash said...

Goodness, I can COMPLETELY relate to this. I am in India right now and I should be enjoying my holidays. Instead I think/worry about returning to UK at the end of this month, start of a new semester, assignments, exams, blah blah blah...and end up wasting these precious days!!!

Chaggoholic.... said...

Well its all about stop running and maybe only walk with arest once a while to see what all u created or missed noticing....

♥bμşγ-ŵŗϊŧēŕ♥ said...

Very well put. How true too!

Btw, horrible traffic?

humbl devil said...

sophie b. hawkins!!!
so luv this song of hers...
:)

wanna ask ya only one question...
will this post help you in not worrying while returning home next sunday???
>:P

AmitL said...

Sol,truer words were never spoken..and,a coincidence.Just two days back, a (senior)friend of mine had gone to the doc,because he'd been feeling breathless everytime he walked a bit.And,it turned out that he has a cardiac prob,hi BP,diabetes.Now,he's gone to India for treatment from his family docs.
---
When I came to know of this,I was wondering exactly the same thing-why do I dread any day,any hour,minute,moment of the week?What if some situation would occur with me?(Touchwood,so far,God's been good,things going fine and should continue)..wouldn't I regret not having enjoyed life to the hilt,till that day?I mean,every present moment has it's own charm,so why can't I enjoy that as well as look forward to what's coming in the future?
---
But then,all said and done,I'm still happier with the 'present'than many people in the group I have...perhaps it's my firm belief in God and in'whatever happens is for the best'.

Nice post,as always!

Solitaire said...

@ Dreamcatcher,

Then I would worry that Tuesday is going to come soon and Aamir Khan will soon leave!

DreamCatcher said...

ohoo!!
agar aamir ko pehle pata hota to..Lagaan ki heroine tumhi hoti..u missed it.. :)

Nirmal said...

gud post..but no matter wat we have to think bout our future....

ANWESA said...

life's all abt leaving a space in hallows of time.1 who learnt to live will never die....sounded too philosophical?nice read..

Parul Gupta said...

ha ha..i can understand that monday blues thing....it happens with every body....even i hate to get up early...but chalta hain yaar/...life is like that...tabhi to hum holidays ko cherish kar sakte hain...

neways i do agree we should live in the present...but then kehne aur karne mein bahut farak hota hain...

isnt it...

cheers dear

ash89 said...

I can completely relate to this post. Very often, it seems that I'm not able to enjoy my present just because I'm worried about the future.

Raghu Iyer said...

i did not read this blog...i just commented to your short and sweet blog...and now when i read this blog...the same comment fits here too :) :)...

"its not that tomorrow never comes,
its the today that leads to tomorrow!
its the time which stays or moves as we know it moves!"

"if the gas station guy told you that you looked beautiful on a particular day,
you must know very well that you look beautiful everyday and everytime, whether anyone tells you or not!"

Solitaire said...

@ La Vida,

Thanks!! I did!! And I am trying to post them all on blogger and it says the format is not right..I don't know what to do!! I am not so techno savvy!

Solitaire said...

@ Gauri,

***Good one Solitaire :) - as always.

Thanks!

***This post reminded me of a quote by Corrie Ten Boom "Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow ; it saps today of its strength."

Awesome!


***My question is : Is worrying a form of coping mechanism that the human mind itself has devised, albeit unconsciously ? A coping mechanism that is designed to maybe partially shield or protect oneself from potential harm.

I do not think worrying is a coping mechanism. Worrying is not a mechanism at all, in fact. I think it is a genuine emotion that we experience.

***As in saying that if one anticipates something negative, one has the time to garner strength or any other force there may be to try and cope with the negativity.

I would call that more preparedness than worry.

***And about the question you asked me in the comments section of your earlier post Solitaire - you tell me, do you think I am ? :D

I don't know. You certainly sound very insightful!!

Solitaire said...

@ Hemu,

Thanks!! I know all that but question is how to overcome these Monday Blues and the drifting off into the future? And sorry was away for a while from the online world so have no idea about your deleted post.

Solitaire said...

@ Vinz,

Thank you!

You are right but I am not necessarily talking about the "pleasures" of the future. I was in fact worrying about something that I was not looking forward to.

Haha!! I am flattered that you are going to forward the post. I hope that they can get over their Monday blues!

Solitaire said...

@ Arjun,

Its once in a blue moon, right? You are doing well!!

Solitaire said...

@ Tuhin,

Haha! Good idea!!! But what about Monday mornings??? Go drunk to work, maybe?

Solitaire said...

@ Apoo,

I had to read that twice but once it sunk in, I realized those words are brilliant!!!!!

Thanks!

Solitaire said...

@ Ghost,

***probably its all about hope of a better tomorrow that makes ppl live in the future, rather than try to make good of the present.

But it was dread that I was talking about, not hope, Ghost. I wish I was more hopeful about my Monday being great and all that jazz!

****At the same time, living in present gives the satisfaction of being alive. we dont know about the future.

Precisely. Yet we spend so much of our time worrying about the future and trying to get someone to predict it for us.

***too many possibilities.

Can be overwhelming or exciting, depending on how you look at it.

***bt i agree, the present means everything, every single second of it. it answers questions, it creates joy, or sadness, it touches, it connects, it tells you what is real.

Thanks once again. As usual, your comments are deep.

Solitaire said...

@ Pavi,

**True...its better when one lives in the moment..specially when the moment is good rather than assuming n dreading abt a day that is ahead!

Much better than the frowns for something that has not even happened yet.

Actually my place is nowhere near a lake. Its bang in downtown. :D
I had to drive an hour to get to the lake.

Solitaire said...

@ Keshi,

Thanks!!

***It's not that easy to live for the moment...cos we humans dream, hope, plan alot.

And add worry to that list too.


***There used to be a time when I worried so much abt Tomorrow, next week, next year, 10yrs down the track etc etc. Then something happened that changed my outlook on life forever. That made me realise that it's really no point fretting abt a future time that I dun really hv any control of.

Exactly. We can plan as much as we want and try and avoid things as well. But is going to happen is going to happen.

Solitaire said...

@ Bently,


Life and cigarettes!! What a unique analogy. I do not think I have heard that one before.

Actually I am not sure that everyone will agree that we will not have another life because some people believe in reincarnation. However, we don't remember anything from our previous lives anyway so essentially, its as good as having one life.

Solitaire said...

@ SMM,

Good for you!!!! Tell me..do you never worry about things that have not yet happened but are only probable to happen?

Solitaire said...

@ Ekta,

Thanks!! There is a difference between living for the future, and ruining our present by worrying about it right? I do not really mind people planning and organizing and looking ahead, because in some ways, I am like that too. But no point worrying, is there?

Solitaire said...

@ Ash,

Oh! I am glad you stopped by then! Hope this post helps you in enjoying the remaining of your vacation to the fullest!

Solitaire said...

@ Chaggoholic,

True! But I do not like walking or running! :D

Solitaire said...

@ Busy writer,

Thanks!

Yeah Houston sucks in terms of traffic!

Solitaire said...

@ Humble,

Haha! I do not know but I sure hope so!

Solitaire said...

@ AmitL,

Thanks!!

It is sooo true. Sometimes we learn our lessons the hard way. We think that we have it all planned and yet, just one second can change our life forever, in ways that we never anticipated. So it is better to enjoy the present as if tomorrow is never going to come. I know its easier said than done, though. I am glad you are able to do that. I too believe that whatever happens always does for the best!!

Solitaire said...

@ Nirmal,

Thanks! Thinking and planning for the future is different from worrying about it without any reason to.

Solitaire said...

@ Anwesa,

Thanks! Philosophical or not..it does have much "dum" in it!

Solitaire said...

@ Parul,

Yes I do understand Hindi! :)

I know kehne aur karne mein pharak hai. It is easier said than done but try karne mein kya harz hai? Tabhi toh improvements honge!

Sorry..that was my Hinglish blurb!

Solitaire said...

@ Ash,

Very common human tendency. We can learn to improve on it once we are aware of it. So don't lose hope!

Solitaire said...

@ Raghu,

Thanks!!

Its not about me looking beautiful everyday or not. Its about me cherishing that compliment. We all know that compliments bring a smile on others' faces whether or not they knew about that fact themselves.

Can you give me a link to your blogs on rediffland?

Ghost Particle said...

//But it was dread that I was talking about, not hope, Ghost. I wish I was more hopeful about my Monday being great and all that jazz!//

ppl in the office used to say Monday is the best day of the week, i just hated them. even the boss...trying to make everyone happy. bah. on Mondays, i jst go have one of those long breakfasts/brunchs and only come in when my supervisor calls :p pays to be the only editor there. hemm...now I kinda miss the place.

back in school mondays was for assembly. oh hell! theyll make us sing and give hour long lectures on everything that a teen should really do but not be done coz 'our countries culture is not like that'.

see, i hate monday's too. but then again, it makes great memory right. :)

and fridays are what we hope for.

**But what's going to happen is going to happen.


I truly believe in that!

Tuhin said...

So now you have this google ads powering up ur blog? Imagine the kind of ads we'll be subjected to given the kind of topics you write about. I just saw an all-gay resort ad!

Still thinking said...

Hmmmmm, I'm still thinking :)
Nicely written and oh so true. This is something I often think, even wrote about it some time ago.
But there was something I heard from one of my fav personality that stayed in my mind. She said, 'Breathe. Let go. The only thing you can ever be sure of in your life is NOW.'

You know it all Sol and I'm sure you're making the most of your moments now :)

Solitaire said...

@ Still Thinking,

Thank you Mr. Deep Thinker. :p

Those are great words! I think I do know it. Just that I forget sometimes. So this post is a reminder to myself and to everyone else!

Hehe! I saw that too! Funny, isn't it?

It is closed for everyone at this time. Trying to sort some things out. Will open it up when the next story comes up. Ok?

Solitaire said...

@ Hemu,

Hope is a good way to pass blues away rather than dread. Great going!

Solitaire said...

@ Tuhin,

I do not like Sundays because there is a Monday. What about that?

Solitaire said...

@ Keshi,

Yeah I know! I think you and I have had discussions about this before.

Solitaire said...

@ Ghost,

Actually I would like to make a change in my statement. I love Monday evenings because I know that the most dreadful day of the week is over!!!

Vandita said...

cent percent true!!!

Ghost Particle said...

heh! well that makes sense. all the other weekdays are jst markers towards the weekend. cut one day ahead in the calendar, and u get there faster.

i wonder how things work for ppl with no idea of time or day. like...hmmm ME! :D

gunj said...

wow, dat really forced me to think whee is my life headed!!

Princess Mia said...

oh yeah i so dread mondays too n i just keep waiting for fridays.

n after reading yru post i just realised all i do the whole week is wait for friday after friday.....

i think with me its like i have one foot in my past n another in my future....

damn.....thanks for this post.....its high time i live in my present.

*~*{Sameera}*~* said...

So true!It does not do to dwell in the past or dream of the future,thereby wasting away the gift called the present.

jitendra said...

if you truly genuinely love the work you do, monday blues disappear. i found this out very recently but only in flashes.
like steve jobs says, since work is going to fill a major part of your life, it's good to do what you "trulY" love.

That said, i think it's human nature to love chasing - be it chasing happiness or chasing a guy/girl. the moment the chase is over, the value of the chaseee (so to speak) goes down.

Keshi said...

yep :)

hey thats so true...even i just live now for it to b thursday eve so that i can have my friday off...and b4 i know it the day is over and its bac to work...i too feel that i am missing the joys of life due to this...

Lena said...

you know i live in the present but want friday to come sooner still :D I guess these 2 things dont relate together, it is more like one should realize the importance of today but still has the right of blaming the long working week. Quite confusing i guess.

Jack said...

Solitaire,

True, we all get Monday blues- specially if it has been a long week end. I agree with you that we should enjoy today. Past is past and future who knows. Live today but of course cater for tommorow, not with worries.

I tried to visit your other site - realimaginations but was denied.

Take care

AnnFrank said...

This reminds me of one of the hiring manager's idea of coming up wid Monday Morning parties to soothe down da sores of all employees...there were games arranged, free beer, music on in the office..worked really well...Off late the employees have been complaining of "Tuesday Morning Blues" :P

Solitaire said...

@ Ann,

Haha!! That only goes to tell us that we are never satisfied!

Solitaire said...

@ Jack,

Thanks!! Yes..we should all aim for a balance.

Real imaginations is currently closed . Will let you know when its up.

I completely identify with your last para...its holds so much of me.

Doesnt it feel at times, this isnt your thing, your true calling is elsewhere...and everytime that feeling returns n you have no answer its so exhausting emotionally.

Maybe someday I'll find out.

On a weird note,

I think monday evening is my fave time of the week.....knowing the most horrid day is just over...lol !

Most times the rest of the week swims by so fast.

Solitaire said...

@ Cinderella,

OMG! You should read my response to ghost. I said exactly the same thing to him about monday evenings!!!!

Great minds think alike, eh?

My true calling...hmmmm...I know its somewhere else...when I go to a 8 to 5 job, I get into an autopilot mode.

Ghost Particle said...

hemmm...kinda just let time pass without paying attention to days (or deadlines... :(

im only aware of my bday. when some unsuspecting soul call me to wish it then i get all blur and say 'oh yes, duh I forgot.'

thats only one day in a year for blues.

im crazy the rest of the days...hibernate during summers...no winter here.
