It is so disheartening to have so much hope, *try* and then end up back in frustration, despair yearning for a perfect day one! To change my life.
To be free from all the crap.
I was at a class this weekend and he talked about balance and that you can't live in the future and you can't live in the present. You need to be in the moment but you need to recognize there is a tomorrow and to bring balance into your life.
Now, that the astrological time is in Libra, the time of balance, bringing things back to balance, where things go from physical to emotional, light to dark.
I again am starting at Day one of a 90 day challenge.
This time -- I am going to constantly reaffirm my future while at the same time realizing only this moment counts. Why am I doing what I am doing?
I will remember tomorrow doesn't count. 5 mins from now doesn't count. It is where my head is at and what I am doing now.... and why....
