I started reading The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle. It’s actually not too bad so far. It’s helping me become much more present and aware of what’s going on around me. I don’t think I can ever become fully enlightened, which isn’t really my goal anyway. I just want to lead a more mindful life, not get too anxious about things and just try to really experience each moment. It’s doing exactly that so far, so I’m happy! 👍
I also organised stuff to get our passports renewed. Fat chance we’ll be travelling overseas this year, but our passports are expiring soon, and I want to be ready for when things do start returning to normal. I don’t want to be scrambling around at the last minute. So we got our photos taken yesterday; printed out the application forms today; and I’ve also booked our appointment at the consulate on Wednesday 👍 Hopefully the photos will be fine when I go pick them up tomorrow 🤞 For the price I paid for them, they better be!
And because no one is travelling right now, bookings are eeeasy to make at the consulate at the moment! Their website says they’re usually booked out at least one week in advance, so we should take that into consideration if we have travel plans. But because of the rona, no one’s travelling, so I could’ve made a booking for tomorrow if I wanted to! 😱 Crazy days! But I’m not complaining ☺️
