I often find it difficult to do this. No matter how hard I try, I end up worrying about what might happen in the future and forget to enjoy my present.
I’d often be in one of these 3 situations –
1. I love where I’m, but would want it to last forever – so I’d go out of my way to ensure it lasts.
2. I like where I’m, but I want to secure myself in a better position because I don’t know how long I’ll like where I’m.
3. I hate where I’m and I want to change it as soon as I can.
Inference : I’ll be fretting around and about all the time, about one thing or the other, no matter where I am or what I do. In the process, I never get to enjoy wherever I am or whatever I am doing.
A more important inference : The more I run around for options, the more I’m discontented with myself and the options I get. While it’s good to have a plan in place and have everything secure and organised, it’s not necessary for things to always be that way.
It’s not necessary to always plan it all. It’s sometimes good to take things as they come – I’ll atleast will have an element of surprise to look up to. Plus, I’ll end up saving so much time for myself, not fretting and worrying about what might happen.
I sometimes totally envy people who are laid back and relaxed, I so yearn to learn to be like them, but in vain.
But for now, atleast, I’ve decided to take one step at a time, and let just that one step occupy my mind – not the whole path.
