Keeping It Real

Today is a gift, that’s why it is called the present.

I deleted my Facebook and Snapchat apps from my phone at the beginning of this month. I don’t miss them at all… well, okay, I kinda miss the silly filters on Snapchat. I definitely don’t miss the feeling of being constantly connected.

I haven’t written a blog since the beginning of this month. I have been journaling almost every day. I haven’t been running anywhere near as often as I usually do. I have been doing yoga almost every day.

My work is busy. I’m navigating it much better now than I was at the beginning of the month. There’s still stress in my life. A lot of it comes from what’s already happened, or what I am worrying about happening in the future. I’m working on not spending too much time on either the past or the future, because as my therapist so eloquently put it, when I do that I am “pissing on my present.”

It was a difficult decision not to train for and run a marathon this year. Especially since I made that decision 13 weeks into a 20 week marathon training plan. It was the right decision. Yoga has been wonderful for me. My body and mind both appreciate the change of pace. It has been good to spend my time on other things. It has been good to live in the present.
