I am carious about why people don’t stay in the present or “The Now”. I always think what I am doing tonight or what i am doing next? I don’t consider the now and whats around me to contemplate about life . I was talking with my dad earlier today about why we don’t stay in the present. I came across a powerful conversation with my dad while we were walking on the Katy Trail. He said the reason we don’t stay in the present is because we always worry about the small things and we sometimes don’t slow down with our daily living and we don’t have time to stop. I fall into that trap of always going and going and don’t realize i need to slow down to breath and to stay in the now. We always fall into the trap and we need to lean on a trusted friend stand back up on our feet. we need to stay in the now to listen to the birds chirp and the leaves falling on the ground and feel the fall breeze on our faces. Sometimes we rush and rush to the next thing and not to gather our thoughts before we go to do the next thing. We need to practice this to not be to stress out and not to lash out to the people we love the most. Lets try this this week to see what happens and jot them down in your journal and then by the week ends you will look back on it and to see how this actually helps with our emotions and you feel much happier and at peace with yourselves.
