I’ve been taught that focusing on Here and Now makes a huge difference in my perspective.
Here and Now is really tricky…is it the here and now as a phase…as a moment…or as an emotional status??!!
Then I thought, what about planning?!
Most people plan ahead…for their careers, for their kids…the future and rainy days!
And I too think about those and regardless of the fact that every time i stop for just a moment to think about the future and what rainy days might bring, I do panic…regardless of all that i can’t help planning…short, careful plans…nothing that is overwhelming could find a place in my calendar.
Yet, I’m attracted by the whole Here and Now concept.
I can make my kids have a good time now…I can make my mom happy now.
If i save up for a rainy day in one or ten years…I might not live to give them that then.
So, Life and how exciting and frightening it is confuse me and I loose focus just to find myself running to that Here and Now spot and i pin my feet on its secure grounds.
