How To Not Live In The Present Moment

By HappySkinnyGirl

I’m trying to live in the present moment, but lately I’ve been procrastinating to go out doing stuff.

Day 1
Opening the blind, looking outside, ” Oh…, it’s snowing, the wind is blowing and it’s freezing
….maybe tomorrow.

Day 2
Opening the blind, looking outside, ”Oh! It’s not snowing…but it’s still freezing

… maybe tomorrow.

Day 3
Opening the blind, looking outside, ”Oh! It’s a beautiful day, the sun is shining, the snow is glittering. Glancing at my thermometer, it’s a lot colder than yesterday

… maybe tomorrow.

Then reality struck me. What was I doing? I should be thinking what I would like to do today. True, that the weather was very cold but I cannot control it. I shouldn’t wait for the perfect weather to go out and do things. Then I remembered I’d an headache and was still reluctant to go out.

Anyway, I went out today. My headache was gone and I felt better.

    I like this post a lot! It describes a lot of people. For me, I don’t mind staying home reading, writing or watching a biography on TV. But this post reminds me of other things I put off and shouldn’t. So, thanks for the reminder 🙂

    I can be like that too, but what I have noticed is that if something is important to me I will do it no matter what happens!

    This is so me right now. I confess, I grew up in a warmer climate than where I live currently and I DON’T LIKE COLD! There, I said it.

    But I can’t let it beat me. So I am going to go out today and do something active. Even if it is just grocery shopping.
