Each new day is much like meeting a new person… with whom you will be spending the next 24 hours. Imagine if you were to spend the better portion of those 24 hours thinking and worrying about the people you’ll meet tomorrow, or next week, or next year while you were with this person.
Now try to put yourself in the shoes of your new friend; how would it feel to be with someone you just met who is paying no attention to you, who is not finding out what new things you have to offer, or who isn’t enjoying spending time with you? That wouldn’t make you a very good new friend, would it? It would kind of make you an inconsiderate ass.
We expend so much energy every day on the what-ifs and what-abouts that we truly miss the right-nows. Try to choose just one day this week and approach it like you would a new 24 hour tag-a-long friend, and see what it has to offer. I suggest taking the day out for coffee and just sitting with it. You’ll be surprised the things you learn.
