I am good at reflecting on the past, wishing I could redo things, erase things, change things.
I am not good at being present. I am not good at seeing every day as a gift-- even if I'm tired that day or the bus is late again, or someone says something that hits me the wrong way.
Instead I constantly think "what if" or "what could be."
Lately I'm trying to focus on what is.
It's not bad to reflect, it's not bad to dream, and set goals-- and I defintely do a lot of that-- but I'm trying to teach my control freak self to let go a little bit and just enjoy what God has for me each day. And for me, that's definitely not easy.
So I ask, do you have any tips?
