Dear Lord – help me to be present today with friends, family and students. I can be so distracted with things that creep into my world and ‘shake it up’ a bit. Help me to put all other “things” on hold – take a deep breath and relax for the moment, fully concentrating all my thoughts and focus on the here and now. Everything else can wait. Amen.
I believe that it is a choice to focus on living in the present – wherever I am – I want to be fully there.
When was the last time you had to get a hold of your thoughts and tell yourself to relax, focus and just be there?
