Friday evening, there is nothing as wonderful after a long week at work. When I got home the outdoors was calling me so I took my camera and went for a stroll around the neighborhood. I am working hard at trying to stay in the "now". It is so easy for me to reflect on the past or to worry about the future. Focusing on the gardens of my neighborhood helped keep my mind in the present. I was able to forget about the frustrations of the week, and the fears of the future for a short period of time. My mind enjoyed the rest. Staying present in the "now" does seem to be a good place to be, it just takes a lot of practice for me to stay there. I'll just keep practicing.
