I was trying to understand the meaning of living in the now and the idea that now is all we have.
I imagined that happiness was a blue dress. I imagined I was wearing a blue dress right now and I traveled to the past when I have might have worn that dress and tried to remember what I did, where I was, who I was with and what I was feeling. Then I tried to imagine myself in the future wearing this beautiful dress at a party with friends.
Then I stopped my imagining and decided to change that blue dress to a pink scarf because in order to for me to understand my metaphor I wanted to have a real life experience.
Then it hit me. I didn’t own a blue dress therefore I wasn’t happy now.
Put on the Blue Dress and enjoy it now.
