Living in the here and now is hard. I want to run and hide a lot of the time. But I don't, usually. Living NOW is the key to living recovery. I can't change the past. Living there only brings more misery. I can't control the future, living there brings more anxiety. But I can live now, today, right this moment.
Staying present during pain is the hardest part of living here and now. I'm learning, I'm getting better at it though. As I stay present, as I feel in the now, the pain gets easier and easier to handle. I never thought I'd live to see the day when I could do that, to live now. The more I practice it, the easier it gets.
