For the past few weeks, I have not been living in the "here and now." I have been too busy thinking about the past, the future and worrying about the present. I have been letting my mind control me. Yes, some of my feelings have been justified due to life's up and downs, but I realize I have been letting my mind sabotage me.
Last night I had an epiphany. I was telling my husband how I was feeling as if my ship is lost at sea, and he said your ship is here and now. In hindsight, I have not been giving enough credit to where I am now.
Sometimes we have to kick our mind to the curb. Even while working on attaining our goals, we need to acknowledge and be grateful for where we are now.
