I look relaxed here, right?
It's a facade!!!!!
Spent a week in the Bahamas and my brain was doing this ...
Wake up - how many more mornings do I wake up here?
Going to bed - how many more nights do I sleep here?
By the pool - how long have I been here?
At dinner - how many more meals do we eat here?
Walking by the beach - how many more months until our next vacation?
Reading a book - how many days until I fly to Dallas?
I try really hard to stay in the moment, but I really struggle with that. It seems as if I am always counting backwards or forwards. Why is my brain so fascinated with how long it has been since something happened? or how long until something else happens?
Remember - this year's blogs might not have any answers - it might be filled with questions and ponderings and noticings. That's what this week is about. I didn't realize how obsessed I was with "counting" time until I really tried to slow down and relax. I want to increase my capacity to be nowhere but here and I'm open to suggestions ...
