Living in the Moment: Worrying (1/5)
I remember feeling like this sometimes, maybe you do too.
It is Sunday night. You have to get up and go to work tomorrow morning. You start dwelling upon this thought, “I have to go to work tomorrow.” You cannot help it, you imagine yourself sitting at your desk, staring at a stack of papers and a computer, and having to deal with overly demanding people all day.
You try not to think about it, you try to live in the moment. But it is useless. You just can’t help it. Your mind keeps throwing up images of tomorrow.
You continue to worry, until you find some distraction . . . maybe a book and some wine.
So much for living in the moment, so much for years of meditation – you can’t even face a routine Sunday night without worrying about tomorrow morning.
What is one to do?
I want to return to this question in the next post.
See you then.
