We tell ourselves stories all the time

What are avenues for being present? Observe. When you notice that your mind has made up a story about the past or the future, simply observe it. Observation of the story will bring you right into the present. After a while, you’ll start to notice that you are not your story, and that two separate entities exist: you in the present and your mind with its story.

The saddest thing of all is that, in these hours of sitting here, I’ve gotten so little writing done.

I’ve been thinking and sleeping mostly.

Given that I’m about to go out and try to be entertaining, when I’ve been feeling anything but, I guess that’s ok.

Go easy on yourself — no-one else is going to.
