Yes, I do get a bit (more often than not…) ahead of myself (in the future), but in my defense it’s in an effort to feel grounded and safe in the present. At least that’s what I’ve told myself. OR, has it all been me doing what I can to control. Control situations, things, other people, and myself. Control for fear that situations, things, other people, and myself won’t be the way I wanted, desired, or expected. Wanted and desired expectations that can be quite high and mostly not realistically achievable even by me! I guess what I’m saying here is that I believe the present needs my help being created. This controlling can cause a tremendous amount of exhaustion, stress, and discomfort. And, let me add in, I know the need for control (by me) isn’t even needed. But knowing something and living it can be two very different things. OR, is this also something I tell myself?!…WOW! The stories I tell myself, believe, and live by that cause a tremendous amount of exhaustion, stress, and discomfort. Not only for me, but my family, friends, and bigger community that I interact with on a daily basis.
So… When a very wise person, who’s much younger than me by the way, said to me today that I should try living in the present moment, I listened and heard it at a new and different level. Can anyone relate? Who else can benefit from this advise today?!
