The high temperature today in Texas was 40°. My 10:00 am Dentist appointment was in the forefront of my mind.
While at the Dentist, I overheard people calling in canceling, but was really glad I didn’t. I told the hygienist, “Nobody wants to leave their house today.” Tomorrow will be even more difficult to step outside. They say the low tonight is 28°.
I’m practicing what I know to stay in today. Not inside my house, but in the actual day.
Life just flows better when I’m present and do what’s right in front of me to do. It’s so easy to mind jump into tomorrow, next week, or next month, but doing that stagnates the natural flow. When I allow my mind to travel the well-worn path of future thinking, I miss out on the little things of today.
So, I stayed in today and it flowed. After the Dentist, I went to the market and picked up items to make dinner tonight and tomorrow night. That’s as far ahead as I would let myself think, and then I came back to today.
No matter what you have before you lovely, I encourage you to stick with it and stay in today.
