Living now! Cartagena

image

I’m in Cartagena, having a rest day and am giving myself some extra time to think about a problem I discover I’ve been suffering from during the last week.

It’s hardly something new, but rather something that I was hoping the-walk is going to help me come to grips with.
I find myself not living in the moment.
Although I am walking through Spain and have at least three more weeks of walking in front of me, I am spending way to much time thinking about what is going to happen and what I am going to do once I get to America.

What a waste! Here I am, in the middle of a great adventure and I’m letting it slip past, wondering more about a possible future than the wonders around me.
It’s a character flaw that’s far from new to me, and one that I know I have to work on. A part of my curious and restless soul that helps to drive me forward, avoiding stagnation, but that at the same time prevents me from truly living in and experiencing this moment.
I’ll have to be more careful to be aware of here and now, I’ve no doubt the future will get here in time!
