One step at a time

Today’s blog applies as much to dog walking as to life.

We all at times get caught up in the rush of life and modern society. We start to focus on those long lists of overdue tasks and thinking about the future.

That can be as simple as what will I have for dinner tonight?, I must remember to put the washing machine on when I get home, I had better check what date the kindergarten end of year show will be so that I can turn up.

All of these thoughts take us out of the present moment.

Whether walking, commuting or just sat in that rather tedious Skype meeting, our minds start to wander.

A multitude of factors and events will no doubt change between now and when your thought-about action will occur.

Writing reminders or lists can be a great way to just move on from the persistent thought and return to what you are doing.

Another thing is to embrace the unknown and uncertainty of the future with optimism.

Most of those intrusive thoughts and disturbances are really not a matter of life and death.

On the dog walk this can be just focusing on your very next step.

The consequences of not doing this can easily be a slip or twisted ankle in the terrains in which we explore.

It is humbling and mildly funny when you suddenly end up on your bottom because you let your attention slip and tripped on a root.

Let go of the future…..

As Mark Twain once put it “I have spent most of my life worrying about things that have never happened”
