GIWM #4


Live in the present, before the present becomes the past.
Get Inspired With Me #4

This quote is a pretty big challenge for me. I am definitely guilty of thinking more about the future than the present. Why? Sometimes to escape what's happening now; sometimes because I'm afraid of what's to come.
Fear of the future is anxiety.
Now, I am not saying that that we should all be afraid of the future, or that if you are you have some kind of anxiety disorder; but I think we've all had those moments. No one can see into the future, and the vastness of all the possibilities can be overwhelming.
Even if you're not afraid of the future, you can still be guilty of forgetting to live in the now. I've noticed that sometimes I think of the future as a way to escape what is happening currently. I want so badly for my future goals to happen now that sometimes it stunts me.
 But if you're not doing anything right now, working toward that future, you are not going to have that future!
It's good to have goals, but getting to wrapped up in your future, can erase the possibility of it.

My goal this week is...

To live in the now. To wake up and look forward to what I'm going to do today. To motivate myself with what I have to live for now, not just in the future.

Remember you are worth it, and you do deserve happiness.
