Being In the Moment
Thursday, April 12, 2012
Sometimes I feel like I'm always planning the next thing. We have been so busy on the weekends and they are planned so far into the summer already, it's kind of sad. All good things, but it gets a little crazy at times. Our laundry isn't even caught up from last weekend to pack for this weekend. It makes it a little hard to appreciate and live in the day and moment sometimes.
This weekend though, my goal is to take it slow and enjoy it. I am going to stay with my Grandfather and his wife and their two year old (yes, I have a two year old Uncle/ Godson). Saturday, I am going to my other Grandparent's 60th Wedding Anniversary celebration. Sunday, I am taking my Great Grandmother to brunch with my baby Uncle. They all live around Albany (about two hours away from me) and I don't see them enough or call them enough. My goal for this weekend is to not spend it worrying about the next thing on the to-do list and really emotionally invest in what I'm doing at the moment so what little time I do have is quality time.
I am working on being a more positive person in general, less synical, and more grateful for the people and opportunities I have in my life. I'm realizing that feeling stressed is sometimes a choice. Running has been such a great way to release a lot of negativity and center myself.
Going for 5 miles tonight after work... can't wait!
