One lesson I’ve really learned over the past month or two is the importance of being present. You might think, “yeah, I’m here, I go to work, I come home, I do my random stuff, I’m present”. Well, kinda. Yes, you are there, but are your mind and body both really there?
I’ve tended to be a person who counted down days on the calendar to big events or wished I was elsewhere much of the time. It took a while but I’ve realized that you are where you are, when you are, for reasons. You are surrounded by people who love you. You can find your passion to help you stay grounded. Think on these things to be present.
So take a look around, enjoy what you have and stay in the present.
