Felt very low at the start of today. Got out and about. This helps me find some perspective on things.
Sitting in cafe Nero sending an email , a little child, about 18 months, came up to me with a toy cow. A conversation ensued with lots of mooing and Laughter. Raising my head up from the conversation I found the most of the cafe where being entertained.
This little episode helped me realise the now is only worth anything when connected to the world. My natural fears can often force me to separate from my environment and find excuses to push the now away, dwelling in past and fearing future
Getting home, I quickly jumped it my car to visit my girlfriend and daughter. Unsurprisingly, now had followed me, I spent the evening playing, talking and feeling the joy and love now has to offer, if I let it connect with me.
