It is a beautiful day, or else, a terrible one, depending on what you focus on.
As I sit to type this, my mind goes into instant overdrive, as I'm relearning to single-task and the world is one giant, social-media-ball of distraction. I have an incredible headache. My feet are cold. I've been sick for almost a week. There's construction banging away right across the street from the chilly apartment where I sit, by myself, halfway around the world in Kiev, Ukraine away from my life, my home, my love, and my darling kitty that I miss so dearly and haven't seen in two months now.
All of which sounds pretty shitty, but despite all this I am overcome with joy and with gratitude, because of what I am choosing to focus on: I am on a trip around the world, because I am chasing my dreams. I am doing it. I have medicines from an inexpensive doctor in Paris and am sure that I am almost back to healthy. I have fuzzy socks that are mismatched and beyond comforting. Sitting and watching the construction team across the street is more fascinating than television. I have a whole day to sleep in, to catch up on emails, and to send photos to the incredible people who support me and my redikuluss quest for Worldwide #WhiteGurlBootay Domination..
So should you ask me - It is in fact an INCREDIBLE day.
Basically, I am embracing the power of Focus. Where your attention goes, energy flows, and endlessly making and remaking the choice to focus on the beauty and endless joy of this present moment. After all, the present moment is all we have.
