"I am Breathing In, I am Breathing Out"

I have been reading an interesting book written by a Buddhist, and it's really got me thinking. It's all about living in the present. I really struggle with this concept.

I look too far into the future, even if the future is just a few days ahead.

So, I am practicing the awareness of the present, and really tuning in to how my body feels and its reaction to the world around me.

Just reminding myself that I am breathing, forces me to focus on a simple but essential part of my being.

It's riveting.

Rest. Drink some tea. Breathe. Listen.
