geesh, worrying or dreading the future and depressed about the past are two robbers of time! i KNOW this fact, so WHY do i keep going back to the past or thinking of the future?
i sit here and think about all the stupid stuff i did during this past week (over-eating, negative thoughts), and all the stuff that i didn't do(didn't make healthy food choices, didn't exercise enough, didn't spend enough quality time with God, hubby, kids).
and now i am just sitting here worrying an dreading the future! (am i gonna eat right? am i gonna exercise enough, will i spend my time more wisely? oh, AND i work 13 hour shifts back to back and then start midnights!)
why not just think about this moment? me drinking my coffee, listening to the birds and other critters, feeling the cool breeze blow over me...
thinking about my GREAT hubby and AWESOME kids, wonderful home, we HAVE jobs, we have friends... ect...
now i KNOW i can look back, but i need to quit mourning it! and the future, i can look ahead, but i shouldn't dread it, it is a GIFT!
so, my goal for today is to stay in the moment. and if my mind drifts to worrying, dreading or depressed, i won't judge it, i will just try to calmly try to re-focus my mind on this moment.
also, maybe start writing my daily blessings in my blessings book. (a book i have that i write down as many blessings i have had throughout the day, because i have a TON of blessings every day!)
here's to YOU and ME living in the moment!
