Be here now

Day 571.

“It is of no use to sit in a peaceful forest if your mind is lost in the city”
Thich Nhat Hanh

I often catch myself not staying in the moment. Such a bad habit. Why do I allow my mind to wander instead of staying where I am? It is a waste time to replay past events in my head – the past is the past, and nothing can be changed.

Today I went to a local beach (I took that picture). It was absolutely beautiful.  Why would I want to stand here in this fresh air, the sound of waves crashing against the sand, the smell of sea weed, and instead let my mind stay lost in the city of the past?

 

 

 

One thought on “Be here now

  1. I love this! I struggle with “being in the moment”. I waste faaaaaarrrr too much time overthinking and over analyzing past and future situations and rarely (like never!) stop and just BE! Thank you! 🌊☀️
