On any average day in the midst of living, my attention is pulled in multiple directions.
There is a meme that’s floating around the interwebs that reads in effect, that as long as you don’t take the steps to realize your dream you will be working for someone else helping them achieve theirs.
Many times I find myself thinking about the current happenings of the day. I make a conscious effort to avoid them; however having this phone in my hand can be the gateway to loss of focus and being deliberate. It can stop me from progressing.
It can also be a tool to help me focus. It’s my choice.
Everyday we are drawn away from the most important source that should be receiving our attention.
I found myself having to do that a few times today. I know what it means to be centered and I know that we ultimately have control over how we feel, but its so easy to get swept up by emotion.
I have been guilty of this a lot lately. Sometimes I find myself trying to pawn off the way I’m feeling on what someone else has said or done to me. That’s the biggest cop out.
What’s important to remember is that we have dominion over all things, including our feelings. We don’t have to feel bad if we don’t want to. We have to remain in a state of appreciation and be grateful for life.
It definitely takes practice. Yes I’m talkin bout practice…HA! Practice makes perfect.
So right now I’m feeling Amazingly Awesome Truly Grateful. I appreciate my life and all the goodness that comes to me NOW!!!
