There are ups and downs to having a mind like mine. One on hand, it's quite fun being able to think so much, to not get caught up in the mini dramas of life that won't matter when we're on our death bed. At the same time I miss out on a lot of the little things that bring joy to life like noticing a nice view or being aware of something funny happening in my surroundings. Being present is something I struggle with and I probably will until I'm old and grey.
Today was a fun day - I went out to lunch with my best friend from high school and had a great time. She brings out a fun side in me and I really find life to be an adventure when I hang out with her. I'm going to make an effort to catch up with her a lot more as she's someone that really lives. She takes the good with the bad and I need more people like that in my life.
Instead of living 5 years in the future I'm going to cut it back and just start looking at the next six months. Not what I'm doing next year or the year after that - just what I'm doing right now. ♥
