My word of the week this week is:
I don’t mean a gift, I mean to be present. In the moment. In the now. Focusing on this very moment, on what we are doing. Who we are with. What they are saying. What are we hearing.
Using my senses. What can I hear? See? Smell? Taste? Touch?
How many times a day do you miss the moment? You didn’t hear your toddler trying to talk you. You didn’t taste your coffee. You didn’t see the rainbow or the new flower bud. You Didn’t feel the sun on your face, or the refreshing rain on your skin.
Some-one asks you ‘What did you do today?’ You go to reply, but wait, you think to yourself – actually, what did I do today?
I am going to be more present. With Pickle and my other children. With my mum and dad. With my friends. With life.
How present are you?
