Mellow, mellow

Life’s good. In a few weeks, I’ll be moving out for the first time. Although antsy and full of excitement, I constantly have to remind myself that life is still happening here, right now, in the present moment. And for the record, I’m writing this post while stuck in standstill traffic for close to an hour now! Talk about the perfect opportunity to practice what you preach.

I’ve challenged myself to just relax and enjoy every step of this new adventure. Even though I can't wait to sit on my new screened in patio and sip orange chiffon tea while soaking in the Florida sun, I'll still cherish these last weeks of being under my parent’s roof. It’s bittersweet.

I’m so grateful for what’s brought me to this point in life, constantly reassuring myself that the frustration, confusion and countless other problems twenty somethings take too serious, were just signs of life going in the right direction.

Change is a beautiful thing when we accept and adapt to it. I’m no Dali Lama, but refocusing my mind in the present moment has proven to be a helpful remedy when combatting everyday stresses and doubts about the future.
