You’ve done those “ideal day” visualization exercises, right? Well I just had my ideal morning, and hope almost ruined it. Over and over this morning I was dragged out of the present moment by hope -
I hope I feel this healthy tomorrow.
I hope I have enough energy later in the day.
I hope I don’t do the “wrong” things today to make me feel sicker tomorrow.
I hope, hope, hope.
Gratefully, I continued to abandon hope. Over and over again. And as a result I got to enjoy my ideal morning. Up early without an alarm clock. Remembered my dreams. Cuddled with dog (who had to be bribed with treats). Good coffee. Walking in the sunny woods with Happy. -Katy
