Well, it’s another Friday everyone! I hope you all had a terrific week and have been able to make some positive strides in your life. I know I am ready to enjoy this weekend! This week has been so busy and it is so easy to get caught up with everything going on around you and lose sight of what is important.
Today I want to talk to you guys about the importance of being present. And I am not just talking about showing up to work or showing up to your obligations. I mean really being present. Putting your phone down, paying full attention and just really committing yourself to whatever is in front of you. In today’s world, it is so easy to get caught up with screens or just be moving to fast to slow down and be present in what is around you. I know I have talked about how important it is to let go of the past but, to be fully present it is a lot more than that. You have to let go of the “what ifs” and just live. It is important that you remember this when you are faced with doubt and worry. Not being fully present can sometimes be our biggest downfall. Instead of committing to an action we sit and ponder on it. Wondering if it is the right decision or if something else will happen or a multitude of other things and during all that, we lose the true goal of what we were aiming for.
The failure to be present in your daily life can also hold you back by not letting you fully enjoy things. Imagine you are doing your favorite thing and you keep looking back at your phone or distracting yourself with other things. You lose the full potential for joy and happiness by taking yourself out of whatever you are doing. The more present you become in everything you do the more things will start coming back to you in a positive manner. You should always put your full energy in everything you do because if you are only giving half your energy you will only get half the satisfaction.
That’s all I have for today guys! I hope that you spend the weekend doing all of your favorite things and living present throughout them!
