Staying Present for the Ride: Reverb13, Day 10

Reverb13, Day 10 Prompt:

Living life on auto-pilot can feel disorienting and dull. How did you cultivate a life worth loving during 2013?

How can you turn off your auto-pilot button in 2014?

This year, I began to disconnect from autopilot by setting up healthy boundaries for myself with certain people in my life. Auto pilot was definitely the default when I was feeling exhausted, drained, and tired but this year I shook it up a bit. My house was a bit more disorganized, I took more naps and slept in, and I went out and did more of what I wanted to do like attend concerts, storytelling events, and having brunch with my good friends.

Next year I will turn off the auto pilot button by diving deeper into doing more of what I want and continuing to celebrate life. Life is here for us now and its full of color and nuance, which is hard to see in auto pilot mode. I plan to be more present to what life is offering me on a daily basis and notice the beauty of it all.

Next year I am going to continue to shake things up and stay present for the ride.

    What a great phrase! Good for you for setting boundaries. It’s sometimes really hard to do especially with people who mean a lot to you. Sounds like you’re on the right track!
