TILT: Week One – Let’s do this thing!

August 23, 2012 in Things I Love Thursday

The idea of gratitude is a difficult one for me to get my head around. I think it’s possibly an Irish thing – being incredibly laid back and all that.

Waiting is a state of mind. Basically, it means that you want the future; you don’t want the present.~Eckhart Tolle

Being present in my own life is something I am constantly working on. It’s so easy to just keep waiting for events in the future – Summer holidays, Electric Picnic, or even “when I’ve lost the weight” and “when I have the money”.

Life is what happens to you while youre busy making other plans. John Lennon

Things I Love Thursday (or TILT) is my opportunity to focus on the present. Why am I waiting? What am I waiting for? What’s wrong with now? So here’s a list of the things I love right now.

  • Friends – new and old
