Day Four: Living In The Moment
“Truthbomb >>> If you aren’t living in the moment, you’re living in the past or future. That’s not life, that’s a thought.”
Uncovering // Crafting My Manifesto:
>>> How do you define living in the moment?
Being worry free and feeling totally relaxed. Actually Feeling free and alive.
>>> What feelings do you stuff down instead of letting yourself experience? What could be a safe way to start experiencing them?
I’m stealing the MA ideas for this one because it’s exactly what I need to do: “Let my tears be my teacher. Give myself time and space to be with how I feel instead of telling myself I’m wrong. Don’t suck it up, let it out. Seek others who cheer my joy on to come alive!”
>>> What thoughts get in the way of being in the present moment?
The lies: I’ll never get out of this town, I’ll never find a job that I love AND that pays well, I’ll never be who I want to be.
The truth: Life is a process that must be taken day by day, moment by moment. Eventually, I will find a job I love in a place I love. And I’m learning who I am every single and learning how to accept that rather than trying to change it.
>>> Fun Bonus: When I was little, I lost track of time by ______.
When I was little, I lost track of time by playing outside for hours and hours.
