fantasize about the now
We are all guilty of dwelling on the past and stressing about the future.
However, the other day I caught myself doing something that may seem harmless, but still takes away from living in the present: fantasizing about the future.
It seems pretty innocent, and coming from a dreamer I can't condemn anyone for doing so, but I do want to share my discovery with you.
I was laying in bed, observing my surroundings. I recognized the love I have for myself, my partner and my home. I started letting my mind wander to potential futures. From growing older in the same apartment to living on the road to being my own boss career lady that I've always wanted to be. My imagination ran so wild that I was lifted out of the moment. I noted that, and brought myself back to the present.
I realized that my current situation, in that very moment, was at some point a version of a future fantasy of mine. I was living one of the fantasies that I often put in a category as a naive, unattainable dream.
I was suddenly filled with such a great amount of joy and self-awareness in simply recognizing and appreciating what was surrounding me in that moment.
Clear your mind, practice gratitude and feel the most present you'll ever feel.
Fantasize about the now.
