Do you always focus on where you’re NOT?
When you’re at work, are you thinking of something non-work related and barely able to focus on the task at hand? And then, when you’re at home, are you then stressing over what you didn’t get done at work that day, what deadlines are coming up, etc.?
I’m *slowly* (but better late than never) learning that if we spend our lives looking through the rearview mirror; focusing on where we’re not, then not only will we feel guilty, but we’ll also miss the moment that we’re actually in.
What about this instead: Focus on where your feet are.
Flip the focus away from the rear-view mirror to looking out the front windshield instead. Say the words “I’m going to be where my feet are” whenever you catch yourself drifting.
In doing this, we can not only shake the guilt but also give those around us the gift of our undivided attention.
Be where your feet are.
