We are where our attention is!
While we are home our thoughts are still absorbed with solving the challenges we face at the office.
And when we are at the office we find ourselves worrying about problems at home.
We go through the day without really listening to what others are saying to us.
We may be hearing the words, but we aren’t listening to the message.
We go through the day and we find ourselves focusing on past experiences or future projects.
We are so involved in yesterday and tomorrow that we don’t even notice that today is slipping by.
We go through the day rather than getting something from the day.
We are everywhere at any given moment in time except living in that moment in time.
To pay attention is learning to be wherever you are.
To pay attention is capturing each moment so that it becomes a new part of who we are.
To pay attention is something we do; better, it is something we experience. Fully.
And until we learn to be where our attention is, we will never really enjoy the moment. Fully.
Where is your attention now?
What will you do today to remind yourself to pay attention?
