This piece was created as a part of my 2016 project #AbstractAffirmationsDaily where I share an abstract piece of art with a positive message every day. Here's the story that accompanies this piece, posted on 3/10/2016:
I can hardly believe it but moving day is finally upon us! We’ve been packing all day today and tomorrow morning we’ll load up the U-Haul, head to Oceanside and start the next chapter in our new home. I’ve been looking forward to this for weeks since we signed our lease agreement.
Still, as much as I feel like a kid on the night before Christmas, wanting to just hit fast forward on my life so it can be tomorrow, I’m reminding myself to slow down and STAY PRESENT. To not be in so much of a hurry to get to the next phase that I trade today in for tomorrow. Because the truth is, cheesy as it sounds, all we have is today. All we have is now. And so when my brain goes drifting off to daydreams of decorating our new living room or momentary freak out moments of “don’t forget that!”… I pull my attention back to where I am in this moment, appreciating all it has to offer me. Soaking in the sound of the birds on our back porch and the way the light pours into the kitchen and how good it feels to go through my things and let go of what’s no longer serving me.
Excitement is a great thing. Anticipation and welcoming the future with open arms are great things. But let’s not allow our desire for the future to create a shadow on the present. It’s here, it’s now, it’s real.
