I was thinking about the past and something came to mind, being present. We, well I, often find myself thinking about the past and longing for it and even asking myself what's next. I plan ahead for everything, from meal planning for the month, to picking out my clothes for the week and I caught myself in the middle of a conversation the other day thinking what it would be like if I were in the moment. I think we all know someone in our lives who lives in the moment. The person never plans ahead for anything, well it doesn't seem that way. I don't think my brain knows how to stay focused on the here and now however, I want to be that way in some circumstances of my life. I want so desperately to be 100% present. I've decided, for my family, we are going to adopt a no cell phone policy after 7. I will plug my phone in to the charger and let it sit until the next morning. I will no longer check emails or social media after 7 either. I just need a break. I need to get back to what is really important. Finding out the latest scoop from my old college friends can wait as can those many emails. I want to feel more present, especially with the people I love most. How do you stay present?
