It is so damn difficult to stay present in the moment. Distractions are everywhere, especially in my mind, which vacillates between the recent past and unknown future.
Once in a while, when I can remind myself to pay attention, I become fully aware of my life unfolding in real time. It’s for a split second really. It’s as if I awaken for a moment. My mind fully in this present.
I want to feel the pull of the present moment lure me in. I am tired of not being here. I want to feel the excitement of unencumbered first sight, a virgin noticing.
I am looking for experiences that violate my expectations. Places, people and things that will take me somewhere new.
I want to get off the reservation. Travel a bit. Somewhere new.
I expect being some where new will allow me to be fully present, my senses heightened, absorbing the freshness of it all.
To steward the contents of my consciousness to the here and now.
