Musings of a retired teacher
Hahaha! I love this! Hadn't thought of is this way.
very true..which means live today fully
Lovely Dan. I sometimes find myself worrying about that imaginary future - and, thereby, do not 'unwrap' my present. I'll tuck this thought (and image of unwrapping) away to help pull me back when I chance to wander away.
Hi Jenny. I've always enjoyed the double-entendre of the word "present"
Hi Being Me. Thanks for stopping by. The idea of living fully in the moment is, I find, easier than the practice!
Bonnie, I have the same problem. It's even worse when "the past" starts rearing its head unhelpfully, but that's a little bit easier for me to release. (Knock on wood!) I'm glad if my quick post is of use to you. It would be like returning the favor of your wonderful posts as in relating to, not relating from pain.
I really like the idea in this of looking at the future as a gift that isn't unwrapped yet. That's going to stick with me. Thank you!
dan that's clever funny and praiseworthy!!!! nice!! steven
Hi Polly. Good for you! As I wrote the ditty, I was thinking of the final word mostly in its temporal sense; not its gift sense. And a gift it will be if you can be present for the present. As opposed to brooding over some imaginary past or future situation.
thank you steven. praise from the likes of you is meaningful to me.
