Living In The Moment

I tend to over-plan, over-analyze, and over-strategize. I would like to find the sweet spot, where I live and make decisions from a place that is informed by the past, prepared for the future, but absorbed in the present moment in a state of flow.

In this post I share an experience I had backpacking in the Wind Rivers, a more recent experience sky diving, and a personal affirmation that helps me live in the present moment.

Here’s a video of my sky dive experience, if you’re interested.

Aging & Regrets

When I turned 30, I had a bit of a mid-life crisis. I wasn’t ready to turn 30! Since then, I’ve spent time thinking and learning about the aging process, and what to expect from each phase of life. I’ve also thought a lot about death, and how to avoid regrets. In this post, I share how a couple from my childhood (Toni and Willie S.) shaped my perspective about living without regrets, and I share a summary of Bronnie Ware’s “Top Five Regrets of the Dying.”

*Note: Realized after filming that when I mention the “tiny school” I had just started when I was 30, I should have also mentioned my first 13 Williamsburg students, my relationship with whom was also a super satisfying part of life.
