Woman on left: "Every day I get up and focus on not what happened yesterday and not what's gonna happen tomorrow, but what's happening today."
Me: "So how do you know that you're living in the moment?"
Woman on left: "I'm not dwelling on the past and I'm not focusing on what I can't control in the future. Sometimes we wait for good things to happen while you really have the power to make them happen yourself. When your life is going good, things just keep coming to you, but when it's not, you're like a shield deflecting good things. Like, I was thinking about my ceramics studio and I called my friend who has my kiln and I was like, 'Oh, can I have my kiln?' and she was like, 'Oh, absolutely! And, hey, do you want another kiln?' So now I have a place to have a studio and an electrician to run the electricity. So, it's just like more and more things keep happening. But when you put out that deflecting part, people don't want to get close to it--it's like a disease. Yeah. But things are coming together."
