Remember the famous Lennon quote from Beautiful Boy?": "Life is what happens to you while you are busy making other plans." I spend my time scrambling around, working on my "other plans," trying to get them out of the way so that I can focus on my "life" stuff, the stuff I want to do, the stuff I look forward to. I know I'm not the only one who does that. I think we all sequence stuff like that. I mean, we HAVE to, to some degree. Whether we want to or not, most of us HAVE to do the mundane stuff, the house stuff, in some cases (like me) the work stuff that keeps some income coming in....all the necessary, but not necessarily pleasant or likable stuff, that keeps things running smoothly. It's been a slowly dawning realization to me that all those "other plans", all the things I scramble to get done so I can get to the stuff I want to do..those things ARE my life! Those plans comprise my life, every bit as much as the stuff I WANT to get to. I've wasted a lot of time not being in the moment with ALL my stuff, all my plans, all my life, because I'm focused on some nebulous future "life" that is going to be able to happen once I rush through getting A and B and C accomplished! Wow. Is it just me?
