It is so easy to go on auto-pilot. Following the motions of existence. Or possibly waiting for something to change. The big breakthrough, having enough money, settling down with a partner.
It takes effort and a practice of being present and taking stock to fully live in the now. To not follow the path of escapism. To make a good meal, sit down and savour the flavour. To feel the sunshine on your face. To not be elsewhere, outside of your body, thinking about your big project at work.
