Missing Today

Sometimes I feel like I am so busy looking ahead at my calendar and thinking about the future events and planning ahead that I miss today. Life feels rushed and overwhelming when I think about all the things I have to do like: eating healthy, workout, go to work, clean the house, run errands, get the laundry out of the dryer and then actually fold it etc… I am constantly hitting the ground running. Lately, journaling has been a way of forcing me to be present. Making me think about my words as I am pushing the pen across the paper.  God has been teaching me so much these past 30 years that I am looking forward to getting older :) Seems crazy to type it and I dare not to say it out loud just yet. I just mean there is beauty that comes with each day, each year, each experience and just LIVING today.  Its easy to miss it and be so worried about the future events but the truth is…LIFE can change in a blink of an eye. Life can be messy, complicated, disappointing, full of adventure and full of abundant joy. So today, I want to be fully present with each person I meet, conversation I have and not be so worried about what the coming week that I have missed another day.

    I’ve been feeling so similarly and the lack of daylight and frigid temps don’t help. Great post and thanks for the grounding idea of journaling!

      @ahazy19 I can only take the credit for all the typos in this piece :) lately some of the lessons I have been learning are just the Sunday school kind of answers, the things you would teach a child! Sounds easy but it’s honestly so hard to do! I am glad you can relate and that this made sense! Hope you have a great day!!
