It's summer and you're thinking about Autumn.  It's the New Year and you're thinking about Spring. It's breakfast and you're thinking about lunch.  It's nighttime and you're thinking about morning.  Sound familiar?  Suuuuper sorry but you might just be in the.... wishing-your-life-away club.  I know, it sucks.  But don't worry, I'm in the club too!  It's an ugly habit and one that you find yourself stumbling into while innocently looking forward.  But trust me, there's a big difference between the two: looking forward and wishing your life away.  And getting it right can be the difference between living in a state of constant excitement, or just plain ol' impatience.  Take it from someone who learnt the hard way...

I've been practicing mindfulness in small doses lately and it's amazing what an impact it can have on your daily life.  I'm always going to be someone who looks ahead to the future, because, well.. because it's exciting!  However, when you stop living in the moment and appreciating the 'good', assuming the 'great' is always a few steps ahead of you, that's when it becomes a problem.  It's true what they say, ''it's the little moments that make life big'' and I couldn't agree more!  So, although we've got a ton of incredible, ridiculously happy and exciting moments ahead of us that give us all butterflies just thinking about, it's pretty comforting to know that hey, this moment is pretty special too.

As always, I'm hugely interested to hear your thoughts on the topic.  It's something I've been thinking a lot about lately, having brought elements of mindfulness into my life this year.  Do you think you're looking ahead, or just wishing your life away?  Let me know in the comments below!
