Sometimes I find it difficult to push busy thoughts out of my head. Especially if I’m trying to relax or enjoy a vacation. I always seem to spend a good amount of time making lists of things that need to get done, or plan meticulous details in my mind. The truth is, if I actually just let my mind be at peace, I would probably be able to think more efficiently later. Andrew Peterson, one of my favorite musicians, has a song called “The Thing About Airplanes.” In the song he makes (what I think is) a brilliant observation: “Well, the thing about airplanes I noticed this time is you can’t look ahead and you can’t look behind but you can see where you are when you look out the side and you can try to recover some peace.” Every time I fly I think about this song. It is so true. Peace only comes when you just accept where you are & don’t try to change things. You can’t change the past, and you can’t predict the future. All you can do is live in the present. So why worry. Enjoy the present!
