7 Day Now Challenge

I live in the future. The future is full of uncertainty, fears, concerns, and endless possibilities. For some reason, my mind and even my heart lives there. I miss so much of life because I am not there, I’m in the future. This must stop. It sucks.

If you too live in the future, let’s meet up…in the now. I’m going to run an experiment for a week, want to join me?

Each time I catch myself in a future thought, even if it’s tomorrow, I will stop, observe the thought, confirm or deny it’s usefulness and move on.

To remember, I’m going to write “now” on my hand. I think it will work. I’ll let you know next week.

Oops, that’s the future. So, never mind. So far, it’s working!!!!
