Live Deeply

Life is available only in the present moment. If you abandon the present moment you cannot live the moments of your daily life deeply.
— Thich Nhat Hanh

I so often get caught up in the, "what next?".  I'm planning, I'm saving, I'm dreaming, and I'm doing.  I'm trying to keep up with myself.  I've made a conscious effort to seek my version of success and I cannot achieve it without all of those things, the dreaming, the planning and the doing.  But it gets tiring.  It is a shallow way of living.  And time and again, I've noticed my days, simply just, pass by.

I am now trying to, with my goals still in mind, prioritize and do less.  I am trying to restructure not only my daily tasks, but my mind.  To be completely in the moment with each event.  Its hard and it takes practice.  I've discovered that it takes time to train your brain to be fully present.  By focusing on the present and not the next piece of the puzzle to come or the next shoe to drop, taking joy in the moment is effortless.  And I want that.
