But, are you happy now?

“Realize deeply that the present moment is all you have. Make the now the primary focus of your life.”  – Eckhart Tolle 

Sometimes when I find myself ruminating about the future and existing in fear of the unknown, I remember this story.

My brother and my son are good friends. Once when he was visiting and my son was about 6, the two of them had a little heart to heart. My brother was telling him how sad he felt that he had to leave later that day.

That is when my son looked at him, and with his coffee colored eyes, said, “But are you happy now?”
