Being in the NOW

One of my clients has a little girl, maybe about 7 yrs old.

Several days ago, I saw her. She said that she cut her foot on the coral reef, it was hurting quite bad, and she had bandaids on.

Today, I saw her again. I didn't see any bandaids, but I wanted to be "nice" so I asked her how is her foot doing? She just looked at me, smiffed.

SHE FORGOT ABOUT IT.

That was a huge lesson in how healthy children process the world and how we, adults, should too:
anything that was not important and/or painful is forgotten, and you don't bring it back, you just don't talk about it. No carrying the past around. It is all gone!

What matters is NOW.
