My good friend Cute~Ella wrote a blog today about not being so good about being present.

Like her I am guilty of multi-tasking in my mind.  I think most people tend to let their mind go in different directions while engaging in conversations with others.  I don’t do it to be rude, it’s just hard to turn the other tracks of my mind off.  I find it helps to keep a notepad around to jot down ideas because I’m better at letting the thoughts go if I know I have them documented somewhere and I can refer to them later.

Cute~Ella asked the question can she learn to be just in the moment?

Years ago a friend stated the words:

Live in the moment and don’t keep score.

I have always done my best to remember those words.  He meant it more in the “don’t think of the consequences or guilt of your actions” kind of sense, but I think it also applies to the “being present” concept.

So for today
Don’t think about the extra calories
Don’t worry about being 5 minutes late
Don’t worry about getting wet in the rain
Don’t worry about tomorrow’s blog topic
Don’t think about what other people will think

Tell those that you care about that you love them
you never know if you possibly won’t get another chance….

What have you done lately while living in the moment?
