300 Sunrises & Sunsets

Being present in the present

In 2014, I changed everything in my life. My job, my home, my life--everything. Now, I have a high tolerance for dealing with change in my professional life, but like so many of us, it gets more difficult when the change is personal. And dealing with that change was overwhelming me. I found myself lamenting choices I made and fearing choices I had yet to make. I wasn't being very present.

So last year I embarked upon a journey to force myself to be present, if only for 5 minutes a day.

I made a goal to watch 300 sunrises or sunsets and be present in the moment for 5 minutes. Just 5 minutes. Simple enough, right?
