It’s important to be mindful of the present, practicing mindfulness is not only a form of meditation, it is a lifestyle.
We so often say and hear people say to ‘live in the present’, but saying and doing are completely different things. To live in the present means: to live for now and in the now.
I am here now, you are here now, we are here now.

Charlie Chaplin - The Lion’s Cage:
"I’m the one that’s got to die when it’s time for me to die, so let me live my life the way I want to."
We can’t openly talk about ‘being yourself’ without sounding, pretentious, or maybe even unrealistic. However, we continue to talk about it anyway, because we know how hard it can be to stay true to ourselves and to be confident in ourselves, given the judgemental and boring society, we live in today.
We need to stay open minded about individuality and not be afraid to: think different; to look different; to be different; because, we are all different.
But, we’re still human and we’re still branches from the same tree.
