Be Here Now

I have made a decision. I am going to try my damnedest to live in the moment. Not stress about the past or the future. I have a really bad habit of daydreaming about nice things that have happened in my life, or things that are yet to happen in my life. It's a really great way of getting feelings of instant gratification. Unfortunately, those gratifying feelings fade, and I am then left feeling, quite frankly, worse and emptier than I did before the deep thinking began.

This is no good.

So I will do a mantra that the great George Harrison repeated do often. Just finishing reading his book, I feel inspired and hopeful. Which are two feelings I lacked having much of last year.

I know this may sound like a coveted RESOLUTION...but it is no such thing. For I have continuously broken resolutions. Year after year I have failed.

It's been DECIDED.
