Stop This Train I Want to Get Off
So ever since I made the decision to follow my dream, my head’s been spinning. My life seems to be caught in a whirl wind, and for some inexplicable reason, I feel like I’m running out of time. I keep telling myself that this is not the case, and I try to practice mindfulness by focusing my attention on the feel my shoes hitting the pavement, or the gentle breeze on my face. Staying present isn’t easy when you’ve got a thousand and one ideas buzzing around in your skull, but that is what I’ve got to do if I’m going to be able to handle all of the tasks that are before me right now.
Despite being really busy, I have never felt more excited about my future, and my present isn’t so bad either. I’m looking forward to what’s on the horizon, so it’s difficult to keep my mind on the present. However, there is still so much work I need to do to make myself whole again, and to fortify myself for the journey ahead. Practicing mindfulness and staying grounded are my number one priorities now. It will probably be the most difficult challenge I’ve ever faced.
Until next time, I wish you all the very best.
