My moko was asking me question’s the other day, and I was “busy” so I didn’t really hear him. I was too focused on the email on my phone and he ended up walking off.
I was not present, and I feel really stink about that. So this one’s for you Riv ❤️
Be present, focus on what’s right in front of you… More importantly the PEOPLE right in front of you, not the things, or the “to do” list.
Being present simply means experiencing your life in a higher, more intentional state of awareness. You pay attention. You are aware of your senses, your surroundings, your words, and more importantly the PEOPLE around you.
Don’t let yourself be overwhelmed with thoughts of “what, when, why, how, who, what if”.
Focus on simply living in the moment, instead of analysing it or trying to find the meaning of it.
Anxiety and worry often comes from the fear of what will happen, or replaying past scenarios in our mind that didn’t quite go as we anticipated. Regretting, re-thinking or being triggered by what has passed. So, we are living in the past or future state of mind.
You don’t have to solve all the problems of the world at once. Your response to the present moment is the only thing that you can control.
Let your mind be at peace and just… be present.
This is where the calm comes from. By being present, we are paying attention to the present moment.
The present – that’s why they call it a gift x
P.S. – Yesterday I picked up my moko from daycare and I apologised for not listening to him 🤍
