They tell me that I must live in the moment,
Take one day at a time
And forget about that distant future
That could be anything at all.
But I think it’s better to live by the breath
Because each one may be my last.
Breathe in and out and marvel in the fact
That I am alive for this perfectly sculpted moment,
For it was chiselled by God as a gift for me.
I’m thinking of studying again and it will mean getting a student loan (which is scary because I’ve never done that). It’s all very exciting and scary all at once, but because of the person that I am, I am often likely to spend too long thinking about the future, both good and bad.
But I also know that this can be dangerous. It can cause worry if things could go badly. Or it can cause me to rush into decisions if I’m happy and excited.
So right now I am really trying hard to live in the moment. I’m not even living in the day. Every breath is a moment that I should savour. I need to think like this in order to stay sane!
If you are going through any kind of stressful situation then I hope you are able to breathe through it and feel grateful for all the blessings in your life.
