Stay in the Present

It’s so easy to wonder what will happen a year from now, a month from now, even a day from now!

Especially if you are struggling.

Will it always hurt this much?

Will I ever recover?

Will I love again?

What will happen with work? My relationship? My living situation?

Sometimes the idea of a crystal ball that shows us our future, is really appealing.

Not knowing can be hard.

The unknown can be uncomfortable.

And sometimes it is where we need to be.

Will I have an orgasm?

Will I get an erection?

Will we get married?

Will we stayed married?

Our brains can spin questions and tales and make guesses, but they are just guesses.  The only thing you can really do is stay in the present.

Or worry and stress and rail and resist…but I would recommend trying to say in the present.

Here are a few things to try if you are struggling to stay in the present.

  • Practice Sensuality – What do you feel, hear, taste, touch, smell?
  • Ask yourself what you want, right NOW.
  • Try adding the words “today” or “right now” to your sentences. “I don’t know what I want, today.” or “I am angry, right now.” or “Being a parent is hard, today.”  Adding “today” or “right now” reminds us that this too may change.
