I try to live in the present and prepare for the future. Take taxes, for instance, I keep a folder for receipts and documents that relate to tax information the whole year. Then in January, I pull other paperwork for that file and try to get organized. Taxes are not on my mind during the year this way.
I look forward to future events coming up. Not all of them (i.e., taxes), but the majority of them are involving family, quilting, and spiritual goals. Other things I look forward to are: football season, granddaughter’s dance recitals & sports. Curling up in front of the fireplace with a good book or movie and watching it snow.
