Let it go


Waiting has always been a hard thing for me.  The unknown is unsettling. This is strange coming from me maybe given that I am such an adventure junkie and love to go to unknown places and experience things I’ve never before experienced. But the waiting ….the uncertainty, that eats at me. I have been thinking a lot about attachment lately and how, according to Buddhism, it leads to suffering. Being attached to a certain outcome, attached to having something or not having something….it leads to expectations and that leads to suffering. I am working really hard to stay in the present moment, to focus on this second right now and savor it while it is here. So often we let moments pass us by without paying attention.  Today I am recommitting to paying attention, to living in the now.

Now, today I am good. I am happy, I am comfortable in my own skin.

Tomorrow will come and I will take it as it comes.
