“There’s a difference between “being stuck” and “living in the moment.” Unfortunately, for some of us, life stressors and unexpected challenges can knock us off our feet and leave us feeling stuck in that “normal reaction” to an “abnormal situation.” There’s also a difference between “being in the moment” and “moving towards the future” and these two states are not necessarily mutually exclusive and, ideally, they should not be. We must accept the circumstances with which we are faced before we can begin moving from this moment into the future that we want to create for ourselves.”
