Thinking too much #366Days Day 196

For my birthday last month, my sister and nephew gave me an R2-D2 Bop It Game. Today I finally managed to top the high score that was set by another family member that day. As I was playing tonight, I realized the secret. It’s to listen and do what your told. 

Okay, so maybe that’s not a great secret!

But I find myself playing the game and either my brain or my fingers are trying to rush ahead and guess the next move, which eventually causes me to lose the game, the delay it causes becoming just too much to overcome as the game gets more and more fast-paced. 

I think I’m a lot like that in my life, too. I’m so worried about the next thing or what my reaction should be that I miss out on a lot of life’s great moments. I’m trying so hard to guess what might be coming that I miss what’s right in front of me. 

I’ll take my newly acquired high score and the life lesson, too, and hopefully be a little calmer.
