A sense of exciting adventure. Living fully in the present moment means not looking back at what was, or forward to what might be; it means clearly seeing the brilliant shininess of what is -- and giving yourself permission to explore it.
When I was all done conquering the past, I started making choices about who I wanted to be and what I wanted to do in the present. Sure, I was forty and just finally getting started with my real life, but I didn't care about that. It felt good to be so connected to myself and others, so present in my experiences and decisions, that I felt more alive than ever before. When you take back control and connect to the present moment the whole world changes; the fog lifts and suddenly you can very clearly see.
