Here we are almost through the month of July... Where did the summer go? I've been working extremely hard on laying down the fundamentals for the Create Change App Kickstarter & Pledge event in November, rebranding TrashN2Tees (what do you think?) , networking, sewing and to be honest there have been moments when I had to catch myself and get a reality check.
When I sat down to write this blog post I was going to talk about how I sometimes feel the need to disconnect to reconnect.
Like taking a break,
and soaking up a moment.
I make every effort to live my life .in. the. moment. It doesn't always come with balance, sometimes I have to remind myself with a nudge, kick, or push of the cliff shove. Here are 6 ways I get back in "the moment":
1. Be Grateful.
2. Focus on what is in front of you.
Right now there are eruptions of laughter and the thumping footsteps of giant scary monsters just a room away.
3. Acknowledge & Release.
Dwelling on an emotion is never healthy, alas we've all done it. Recognize it, give it a name, and let it go.
4. Emerse yourself in conversation.
Just listen. Intently.
5. Remember to breathe.
6. Repeat your mantra.
Remember that you're awesome. You have unique genius- and you do it better than anyone else can.
I really think its easy to go through the motions, get caught up in plans & chasing dreams- but I don't want anyone missing out on right. now. because truely those are the only moments you can live in.I can type this with such conviction and yet I sometimes find myself off kilter & out of wack. I hope you'll share your tips for un-funking, re-centering, and being in the moment in the comments below. Unless you care to tell me what you're smelling right now... that might be fun too.
