People take life too seriously. 

If you look at your thoughts throughout the day, almost all thoughts are about the past or the future. 

Even when you are thinking about something in the present you are comparing it to something in the past, or to what you want or do not want in the future. 

Most people have very few thoughts that are just in the moment. 

When you can live in the moment, it is called being mindful or mindfulness. You are really paying attention. You are in present time. You are not thinking about the past. You are not thinking about the future (what you want or do not want). 

You are fully present. You are childlike. You are playful. You live with a sense of wonder. You enjoy each experience no matter what it is! Just as a child. You have no cares about the future. You have no regrets about the past. This is a wonderful place to be. Try it and you will see!

And, remember, our words are very powerful. The words you use create the world you experience. Think about what you say. 

Today, focus on paying attention to every word that comes out of your mouth. Notice how negative you speak! Notice who you say the same phrases all the time. You have patterns of speech, habits of using the same words and phrases, and you are generally not even aware of the words you say.

Notice what you are saying almost subconsciously. You speak most of the time on autopilot. Pay attention. Then, focus, be aware, and be conscious of the words you use. Decide to speak positively and with intention and purpose. Remember the old saying "If you don't have anything good to say, don't say anything at all!" 

Remember another old saying, "It is better to say nothing and be thought an idiot than to open your mouth and confirm it!"

Be the person that everyone knows always says only positive things with a smile on his face! Then watch you world improve in every way.
