TILT: Week One – Let’s do this thing!
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 you‘re busy making other plans. John Lennon
