I’ve already begun packing. I’m still a few days away from traveling, but I like to think ahead.
Too much ahead.
I’m a planner. It can be a useful thing most of the time (including packing a few days ahead of time!). I can get more things accomplished efficiently and easily when I plan responsibly.
But the downside of enjoying planning so much? I can miss out on the present.
But one thing I’m learning is that this moment is never a throw-away. The middle moments aren’t meant to be wasted; they’re meant to be lived.
I even used NOW as my One Word in 2015 to specifically concentrate on staying present with God (here are 4 lessons I learned on living in the now, but I’m still working on it).
That’s why I appreciate Lynn’s measured approach in this week’s featured post, “What Is Being Present in the Moment (And Is It Even Realistic?).”
I recommend you read it, too, if you find yourself getting stuck in either the past or the future, or unable to think about anything but the present. We all have our unique stumbling blocks, yet we all can benefit from Lynn’s “Simply Daily Goals” of praying, defining 3 goals, visualizing their completion, and reviewing our day each evening.
Read all of Lynn’s post here, then add your own blog posts below.
