Lunch with myself: Learning to live in the present

For a hyper person such as myself, who always wakes up with a to-do list every morning living in the moment is a challenge..!!

Oh boy..!! And to make things worse, I have a great memory..! So if you ever told me the story of your life, I will probably remember it the rest of my days.

So ask to my brain to live in the present is a challenge, almost a mission impossible.

But I am slowly learning to trick myself into living the present. Mwahahaha..! (This is my evil laugh 😝)

And how am I accomplishing this great conquest?

Well, I am starting for taking myself out for lunch. For no reason, or whatsoever. And believe it or not, as silly as it sounds, those moments with myself make me slow down, appreciate my time and somehow find inspiration.

You probably should know that I like talking to strangers.

That’s right..! I randomly talk to strangers

So now that you are here, tell me: How are you? Everything ok? 😉
