I’m currently doing a 13 day challenge where I try to live in the moment. Each day I choose one activity and try to be fully present to the task. Today I tried to be present while doing some yard work.
I did some yard work today. I did a great job being present while pulling weeds in the garden. I watered the lemon and grapefruit trees just fine and took care of some outside tasks. I felt the sun and just focused on taking care of my yard. I was feeling quite proud of myself on how attentive, mindful and at peace my little head had been during my hour of yard work.
Then I saw this hideous creature sitting on my back patio like it was taunting me.
