Staying Present

It is VERY hard for me to not let my mind wander off and think about hypotheticals regarding where I’ll be when I’m 30 (if I’m 30), where I’ll go next year, or what I’ll eat for supper on Tuesday.

So I went out for a forest wander today (partially due to a head ache and partially due to the neighbours downstairs playing some sick beats that were making bones in my skull vibrate…) because I needed to get away.

I know I need to trust in God more, that I’ll meet up with whatever sort of thing that I need. I don’t even need to know what I’m doing tomorrow, let alone next year, I just have to show up, and be up for anything and that alone will be enough.

Other things: My walk reminded me of how everything looks with snow on the ground, and even though I know the winter is coming I must not let even the knowledge of that consume me. It is also not last winter, this too shall pass. I don’t want to pause between interactions with a specific someone, I’ve got to keep moving on. I should just let the interactions I am led to inspire me and drive me instead of focusing on what I don’t have.

I stood still in the forest today and reminded myself to be thankful, because a lot of good things have happened over the last couple of weeks, and I can’t let the absence of one good thing be my demise. I also need to let myself be happy- to remember to be, and embrace it, even if happiness doesn’t stay, it’s still worth it when we get it. I just don’t like sitting in a post happiness stupor, so I always look to something or someone else to keep me ‘up’ but that’s becoming very artificial and extremely short lived. Happiness ebbs and flows, and that is OK.

bonus: I’m learning to write really introspectively while I live with someone so that’s great. I’m getting used to being alone while still having company, but I’m just doing my own thing.

Also, I’ve realized that social media sites suck the life out of me and makes me less social. I’ve realized I don’t need to ‘check’ things as much, and in place of mindless checking, I’ll write something instead.

Something is Always Better Than Nothing

But I am done chasing something I don’t want.
