I'm the kind of person who very easily gets trapped in the past or the future. Whether it's daydreaming about an amazing vacation to Jamaica from a few years back, or worrying about what my relationship with my daughter will be like when she's a full-blown teenager, I'm rarely in the present moment. I've read books on the subject; I jot down quotes to remind me, but still I struggle with this daily. How about you?
Having something in plain-view does help me instead of jotting down some "words of wisdom" in a notebook that gets shoved somewhere on my painting table. Since I love creating paintings with quotes on them I decided to do a little one with "enjoy this moment" collaged on it. I'm sure there are others out there like me who need some reminders too, and why not have it be in the form of "art"?
I'm really wondering if you have any tips for staying present and enjoying the moment I am in instead of dreaming of the past or worrying about the future. I'd love to hear them...share if you can. Thanks so much!
