This post is inspired by:
A lot of exercise is mindless; you can have music or the radio on and not be aware. But if you’re aware in anything you do it changes you. Being present changes you.
For some reason for the last couple of weeks I have not been in it, in anything. It’s a weird feeling because I’m not normally like this. I’ve been stressing about some things, and then I got sick so that only made things worse for me. I haven’t been participating in class, when I go that is, simply because my mind has been wandering.
When the mind wanders, it just goes, and goes, and goes until something pulls it back. It can go anywhere from past conversations and experiences, to a dreading future conversation, and anything in between.
I don’t know what it is, but some might say I’ve been coasting in a dream.
