Be here now

This will be my last post before the new year.  But I’m not looking forward.  Or even looking back.  Today, and for the coming days, I want to

Be here now.

We spend so much time trying.  Trying to get things done; trying to beat the clock; trying to be a great mum; trying to think up balanced meals that eveyone will eat; trying to squeeze in one more contract; trying to make this the perfect Christmas; even trying to lighten up, for goodness’ sake!

Trying is tiring.

I never thought I’d see the day when I’d quote Star Wars in all seriousness, but it’s inevitable when you live with a small boy.

Do.  Or do not.  There is no try.

 Removing the trying, the striving, makes things much simpler.  Choose to do – or choose not to do.  There is always a choice.

For now, I choose to stop trying, and just be.
