The other day my friend tagged me in this picture and it really made me think. As someone that is in their head a lot, I can definitely relate to being “mind full” and not taking in the moment. As of lately, this is something I have been working on. I need to be more present in the moment and appreciate what is happening and not thinking about what I need to do next. If you are an over-thinker, what are some things you do to clear your mind (meditation, etc.).
No, I am not going to write a post about D’ Angelo’s song “Untitled (How Does It Feel). But this thought has crossed my mind on many occasions, what does it feel like to be homeless and have people look pass you? The other day I was walking and a man asked for change. I found myself finding any way possible not to make eye contact because I felt guilty that I was not able to help him out financially. He proceeded to ask for change but all I did was bow my head and say, “sorry.” After I kept walking, I thought, “does that reaction even phase him anymore?” I have seen so many people do it before. I am not 100% sure how to change my reaction, but I figured it was a start to call myself out on it. Just a thought….
