She’s always thinking far ahead
Of greener pastures
Of times all wrapped in pretty foil
Exciting to tear open wide
But once that wrapping’s pulled aside
The thing that’s nestled, there inside
Is not what once was dreamed of why
Did I ever run towards this high?
I am such an impatient person. I love to dream of the day when I’m rich or the day that I’ve got a published book and everyone is writing rave reviews about it. I just can’t wait for that day, and I can sometimes miss things in the here and now because my head is so far in the future.
Impatience is good because it means that I get stuff done and I’m always striving towards the next great thing. But at what cost?
I need to learn to be a bit more present and just enjoy the moment. For instance, at the moment I am observing lessons in my school and it’s relatively stress free and the perfect opportunity to learn from some great teachers.
However, I’m chomping at the bit to get started teaching my own lessons. I just can’t wait to stand up there and deliver lessons and see my own students do well.
But that will come with stresses and worries. And I don’t ever get the chance to observe again so I should be making the most of what I have right now. I’m learning to just take a deep breath and love the stage of life that I’m in. We are always put right where we are supposed to be a just the right time so I’m going to embrace that and run with it.
I hope that you can embrace it too.
