I'm not a bible person (that should be obvious) and morality from that book is a nightmare.Above is a quote from Proverbs (bible) and it has been used in various types of literature I've studied.
And it is something I've been realizing a lot. Sometimes, I am so far ahead of myself - I envision and visualize myself years down the line, plan for years ahead, but I find myself stuck HERE in time. I know I'm taking steps to reach that goal eventually, but meanwhile, I feel that the hope (me looking to the future) is sucking so much energy out of my motivations, because it takes longer than I thought for me to reach that place.
Lately, this has been worse, because I had to delay some plans by a few months, and one plan up to a year. Imagine this as an analogy: I am about to take the next step up to reaching my goal, but suddenly the next step was pushed far away by some magical force. Now, instead of taking the next step, I have to make a bridge to get there first. And this making the bridge is sucking energy and time out of me, and it's hard for me to focus on the end-goal when I am spending so much grueling effort on the more "present" aspects.
Anyone else relate to this?
Anyways, I like to make my goals as usual but I try to live the present moment and enjoy it for how it is. Carpe Diem
