On Being Present in Your Life

On Being Present in Your Life

Don’t let yesterday use up too much of today.  ~ Cherokee Indian Proverb

So I sat down to work on my Ministry of Happiness post and decided tonight to work on talking about a very important concept, being present in your life.  As with all of the topics I write about I take some time to peruse the web, to see what others have written, to see if there are resources that I can recommend to help you on your journey to a happier life.  As will often happy I bumped into the Zenhabits site, and I do believe it is the one of the best sites on the web.  At times I’ve referred you to the site to check out a particular resource or item, however tonight I find myself utterly impressed with their post on being present.  So, because there is wisdom in knowing when someone has done something better than you can, I will refer you to their amazing piece on being present.  And in the spirit of being present in our over stimulated, multitasking world, take a few minutes to do nothing but focus on the article and let it sink in, great way to start a shortened holiday week, here’s the link:

A simple guide to being present for the overwhelmed and overworked

You can clutch the past so tightly to your chest that it leaves your arms too full to embrace the present.  ~ Jan Glidewell
