One of my favorites is I can not control natural occurrences I can only live one day at a time and they are all good.  Living in the moment means being aware of your senses and surroundings.  The concept is to allow you not dwell on the past or worry about the future.  When we are in the present we can focus on the task at hand and enjoy the process.
