What is interesting is that, in the midst of all this striving for future possibilities and goals, we were not actually living in the present. We often forgot to notice or enjoy the circumstances of our lives and the people we loved as the days were unfolding.
My client and I enjoyed elaborating on the theme. This means, for example, that a person can start taking piano at 80 or 90. She doesnâ€™t have to ask (or answer) why are you doing this? She doesnâ€™t have to have a goal. She doesnâ€™t have to do it so that she can play at Carnegie Hall or teach piano for a living.
