as i practiced yoga tonight, sirens blared outside the window, the bells on the ice-cream truck sung. i was not so subtly reminded of how detrimental a noisy, busy mind can be in the pursuit of our goals.
like instead of living day to day, savoring the experience, you worry about what’s next
worry about wasting time, or moving in the wrong direction.
it’s so easy to succumb to an overactive mind, ignore any efforts to be mindful and constantly doubt your decisions.
But a wise friend reminded me that we must pay attention to signs, pointing us in the direction that we should go.
