I was reminded yesterday that I’ve been projecting myself into the future a little too much lately. I can’t help it, worry & concern over what is to come seems to run in my blood. I have also been guilty of agonizing over the past at times. The past is…. past. You can’t change it. All you can do is learn from it & use it as an educational tool. I really think I’ve been missing out on a lot this way.
Today, I am going to try and focus & enjoy whatever it is that I am doing at that moment in time. Have you ever really tried to do this? Just wash a dish & not think about what you need to do next, what bills are due, who you’re going to get to babysit Friday night? It’s not easy!
I started this morning up early, went in my sewing room to do a few things that should’ve been done last night. About 20 minutes later, Max started yelling for daddy. Then, not to be outdone, Wyatt started yelling for me. I didn’t finish what I was doing. I went in and cuddled with my almost two year old, and I didn’t worry about what I didn’t finish. It was wonderful. We giggled. We tickled. We gave butterfly kisses. I’m going to give it a shot the rest of the day. I’m certainly no expert, but I think this might be a way to find more happiness and satisfaction with life in general.
Now, I’m not sure how much I’ll be enjoying the moment when that pesky eyelash gets stuck in my eye, & try as I might, it just WON’T come out, but we’ll see how the rest of the day goes…
