Day 142: Reset

I think I have to reset my clock by a little bit.

I realized today just how not in the moment I have been lately. Everything that I am doing, it seems, is aimed at that date in mid-July when we are supposed to be relocated to our new home. And I suppose it’s easy enough to say that “it’s natural” that I would be focusing so much attention on such an important event… but is it natural to lose sight of the present moment?

I won’t lie to you and say that I became “enlightened” today and started living fully in the moment. Hardly. I’m still feeling pretty overwhelmed with all that I have to get done in what seems like a ridiculously short period of time.

But today I was at least aware that I had some choice in the matter. I could continue to get wound up, dashing frantically from one project to the next, or I could be present for whatever project I happened to be tackling at that moment, and try to focus on just the task at hand.

    It is easy to allow ourselves to be drawn out of the present, into the past and future . . . oblivious to the moment at hand.

    But returning our attention to the present moment pays dividends as we hear and see what is being offered. Here and Now.
