I like to plan ahead.
I know this can be a problem. Sometimes, I get so wrapped up in what's to come that I forget about what's already right before me. I am slowly...slowly learning that life can't always be planned down to the minute. Because when you do that, you lost the minutes that are taking place right in front of you.
I don't want to lose minutes. Not one single precious minute.
They're mine and I want all of them. And I want to share them with everyone around me. Hannah is teaching me how important this is. She's my baby, but not really. She's a toddler, growing up ever so quickly right before my eyes. If I focus on tomorrow...if I try to plan too much of tomorrow...I'll miss what's happening today.
I don't want to miss any second of that precious little lady's life. I just don't.
So I'm working on living in the present with just a handful of thoughts on tomorrow. Because you can't really, totally forget about tomorrow.
Tomorrow will always come, but today will never come back.
Question: How do you help yourself live in the moment?
