One Sunday afternoon, I had come home from some errands and visiting with family, and instead of the usual opening of windows, turning electronics on, and starting to check things off of the never-ending todo list, I sat at the dinning room table and read a thought-provoking article.
I had been reading for a while, when I realized how relaxed I was to be feeling the breeze from the ceiling fan on low, hearing the neighborhood kids playing outside, reading by the evening summer sunlight, and filling my brain with useful information. It made me realize how much we as humans need that kind of time.
I’m sure you’ve been hearing about “living in the moment” just as much as I have. I probably heard at least three people talk about it in different settings just this weekend. We all know we need to do more of it, but where will we find the time, and how will we know when we’re being mindful?
I believe that being content is one of the best feelings out there, to just enjoy what you’re doing, how you’re feeling, and appreciating the environment you’re in. I hope you all get to be content in the moment today, even for just a moment.
