Being "all there"...being present. Not often the easiest thing to do, especially on a Monday! Still, the conscious decision of being present in the moment, any moment, can be such a rewarding practice.
I feel like so often I will be in a meeting, talking to a friend, family member, etc. and suddenly realize that I have thought of a million different things and have lost focus on what is going on in the "now". It is so easy to get wrapped up in all the things we think are important: our to do lists, checking emails, running errands etc. And yes, those things probably need to happen or need to get done, but I encourage you to really take in the moment and focus....be present, be all there, so that way when you walk away from that moment you will know that you were a part of it, 100%. Time is precious and you have got to spend it doing the things you love and being around the people you love...otherwise what's the point??
How's that for some Monday thoughts? ;)
