thinking about the future is an important part of life, but that doesn’t translate into spending every moment thinking about what’s coming next. i recently made a decision to be more aware of my propensity to do this, and choose instead to appreciate current circumstances – whatever they might be.
traveling for work is not always my favorite pastime. i miss my routine, my husband, my puppy, my patented morning oatmeal bowls. but, i think the more productive focus might be on the positives, being present where i am and what i can gain from the experience.
