Being in the moment
A warm gray morning. The cardinals are singing their mating trills. I can see the wet, soggy ground showing through the melting snow. I think spring is finally on its way.
I've been working on "being in the moment" lately. Taking some great advice from Monday's post I'm realizing that even when I have time with Andrew or out on my walks that my thoughts are all over the place. I'm thinking about books that need to be made, business cards that need to be designed, packing that will need to be done, and calls I should make. It's multi-tasking right? Yeah, I don't think so. Half-baked plans fall to mush and half-baked listeners miss out on the little goodies. After so much multi-tasking-listening I'm realizing that it's hard being in the moment. It's like meditating, trying to draw my thoughts back to person in front of me when they start to stray. But, I'm up for the challange!
