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.
