This weekend has helped me a lot to stay present.
I finally realise that time is a great gift.
I’ve always been rather impatient, enjoying what I’m doing if it’s fun, and waiting for the time to pass when I do something less pleasant.
This weekend has taught me to appreciate the present moment, whatever I am doing.
I tried, successfully, to appreciate each activity, meal, moment, and not be waiting for something better.
This is a small change, but quite profound.
My spiritual guru, Stephanie Dowrick, reminds me ‘Try not to create a hierarchy of tasks. Treat each task with equal care and attention’.
What a revalation!
