One problem I have when I’m planning to do something is thinking too far ahead. The constant “what ifs” can get downright ridiculous.
This especially happens for me with writing. I’ll just begin planning a novel, and before you know it, I’m worrying about what other people might think of a novel I haven’t even begun to write yet.
That’s where mindfulness comes in. Why not just take one thing at a time and be right where I am, instead of being far away in a future that might never happen? Thus, both mindfulness and writing are two areas where I want to put in more time. Worrying about possible futures, on the other hand, should take less of my time.
So, today I will aspire to be more mindful, do more writing, and be more mindful about my writing.
