The struggle to be here now


I don’t really do resolutions. I’ve found that whenever my ambitions or intentions are pinned to some kind of temporary condition, such as the new year, they are more likely to fail. I think that, if you really want to achieve something, you shouldn’t need to wait until the start of a new year to make them happen. Of course, the beginning of a new year is a natural time to reflect… BUT I DIGRESS

I’ve been making long-term plans, and find myself dreaming of the future. The danger with making plans is that you can easily end up living in the future, feeling that your future is what you want, and your present is unacceptable or unimportant. And if you spend large chunks of your life dreaming about ‘tomorrow’ then you never get to enjoy today, and today is your life. So unless we remember to focus on today, and live in the moments, then we aren’t really living. A lifetime could pass without you ever being there.

So if I have any resolution at all, it’s to live for today, and to enjoy each day.
