So often our days are consumed with thoughts and feelings about either something that happened in the past or that may happen in the future. But how often do we simply notice what is happening within you and around you in the present moment? Probably not often enough.
For example, at this very moment, I’m writing this Pathway while on the inside, I’m feeling blessed to have the opportunity to share with the world. It is an unique and interesting feeling to simply stop and notice the things that are going on inside and outside of you. Also, to notice who it is that you are being and how it is impacting the things that you’re doing.
Spenser Johnson, author of The Precious Present, writes; “The present is simply who I am, just the way I am•right now. And it is precious.”
To “notice you,” we must stop planning, worrying, regretting, dreaming, wondering, reminiscing, talking, doing, etc. long enough to be still in silence, and to take in all that is occurring around us in the present moment. Then, by closing our eyes, we can connect with our body and the things that we’re feeling at that very moment.
Ask yourself, “On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being completely fulfilled, how am I feeling at this very moment?” Once you’ve taken time to notice your external and internal self, you’ll be more ready to fully live your life and appreciate the precious present.
Coaching Inquries: At this moment, what can you notice about yourself? What is happening with you at this moment? And now, at this moment? How are your feelings at this moment affecting your external world? How is what you’re doing at this very moment affecting your internal world of thoughts and feelings?
