Be Present...

I did it again this morning...sitting in my chair, drinking that first cup of coffee of the day--I pushed my mind ahead to the end of the week. I hate when I do that, and this year I'm going to try (and it will be hard) to live more in the moment. The year has started with work--Saturday and Sunday and for the next four days (plus school on Tuesday evening) --will it kill me, I ask? I started thinking about the upcoming three day weekend. I've done that for the last several years...skipping my thoughts over the current situation and fixating on time off. Time goes by quickly enough without me doing major time skips.

This year I'd like to eke out as much quality time from each day that can be had...be more productive, be more organized, and definitely be present.

I'm thinking along the same lines myself. Live more in the moment, and stop jumping into the future when the moment is the time we have to live in. Well said!

Guilty here of doing that, too. Only sometimes I even think ahead years...now that's just dumb. Let us know how the process goes for you. I hope that I'll be able to follow your good example. There will be plenty of joys in each day...like visiting your blog!

Guilty......thanks for the reminder. As you said, I am finding that time truly does fly whether you are having fun or not..LOL. And we need to cherish each moment.
Have a great new year Teresa!!!

So true. Last year I promised myself that I would participate in the moment but have been slacking lately. Always planning for the future, but who knows what it will bring? It is crazy to wish away the days. I will try to keep this in mind each day. Thanks for the reminder. Pam

Personally, I am a recovering planner... I love living in the moment. May 2010 be your year!

I was sent over here to your lovely blog, by our mutual friend Vee. :-)

I always like to live in the "Present Season." Like, I don't long for Spring as soon as many do. But that's taking the Seasons, as they come.

I still need to live in the moment, day by day, hour by hour, minute by minute. Thank you for the inspiration to pay more attention to doing so.

Gentle hugs...
