Planning Interrupted

It’s been a while since I’ve posted. My life was interrupted in a major way last month, and I’m only now returning to some semblance of normal. However, “normalcy” may be a fluid concept between now and the end of the year, if not longer. But for the moment, I will enjoy being home and resuming my routine.

I’ll write more about recent life events soon. I wished I had written blog posts in advance, and had them scheduled and ready to go, so there would have been no interruption in the posts, even when there was interruption in my life. However, I didn’t plan ahead very well.

Sometimes it’s good to plan ahead, to try to be prepared for whatever comes your way. But there are times when things happen so unexpectedly, that you can’t prepare for them. Events can knock you off your feet. One thing I can tell you about recent events is that I now truly understand the concept of “one day at a time.” I couldn’t begin to plan more than a day ahead.

It’s interesting to live in only the present. Sometimes, I think we’re so caught up in planning for the future, reaching our goals, or simply planning for the weekend, that we forget to focus on today. Despite the circumstances, it was refreshing to focus on today only.

Now I’m beginning again. Beginning this blog, beginning my routine, returning to my life. Maybe with the lesson learned to not get too far ahead of myself and forget today.

How about you? Have you been caught up in future planning that you forget to focus on today? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
