Being Present and Appreciating the Current Moment
Now when it comes to work I find it easy to be present and focused on what I am doing, whether working with a parent helping them learn the Son-Rise Program, teaching a trainee, editing an interview, handling my emails, etc. It is the in between times, when I have not chosen any specific thing to focus on, that I will spend my time thinking about unimportant things like getting window shades, when to service the cars, did I do the bills, etc. At first it feels like this thinking is just happening to me, but I know differently – I am choosing to focus on this unimportant stuff. Looking further into why I choose to spend my time thinking about these things I realise that I do this to avoid being present and fully appreciative of the current moment. This is good to know about myself – I will change this.
