Right Thinking

02 November 2014 11:41 PM
Just read a little bit about Right Thinking before bed. It comes easy in meditation, bringing my mind and body together and just focusing on my breath, how beautiful that I am alive, and how precious this peaceful moment is. However, in everyday life it is easier said than done.

I am always thinking about the future. A big part of this is natural because I am about to graduate college and I have no idea where my life is going. There is both wonder and fear in this, but I am missing out on enjoying the present moment. 

I always walk in a rush to get where I am going. I forget to enjoy the walk itself and appreciate the journey. I worry about the future, forgetting the right now is a very exciting and mentally stimulating part of my life. I focus on due dates and not lessons. My own health is coming second to stress.

This will not change tomorrow. I will still be anxious and stressed tomorrow and I will forget to enjoy the present moment. But, I am grateful that this has come to my attention, so now I can work on it. Hopefully Right Thinking will come eventually.
