Castries, Saint Lucia: Ernest Hilaire – The Deputy Prime Minister of Saint Lucia has shared a meaningful and thoughtful message with the residents of the country. In his message, he stated that one should be living in the present moment and focus on what can be done today instead of worrying about things which cannot be controlled.

He pointed out that one can achieve peace of mind and soul through living in the present moment, as it allows a person to soak in things going around in the surroundings and be grateful for the beautiful gift of life given by the Almighty.

Through his message, he conveyed that living in the present moment may seem easy at first but is actually very hard in these times, especially when there are countless distractions around us.

It is said that if a person focuses on the present deeds and how he can make a small change in the world on his part, every small step which has some significance is essential and memorable. 

Dy PM Hilaire outlined that being helpful to others without having any expectations of getting something in return is the trait which leaves a mark on people’s minds, which is also the ‘Mantra’ of living a stress-free life.
