Day 7: 30-Day Adventure to an Incredible You

Day 7:  A day atOscar and Conrad the park

My sister-in-law Lori and her 2 boys, Oscar and Conrad, are visiting for the month from Dubai.  Yes, Dubai!  Talk about an interesting life.  I only get to see Lori and her boys once a year so I really like to spend as much time as I can with her.

Today we took the boys to the Ice Age movie and then to a park.  Since my youngest child is 17 it’s been a long time since I’ve been to a kid’s movie and surprisingly to me – I really enjoyed it.  But the best part was watching Oscar and Conrad’s faces during the movie.  They were totally enthralled with the movie.  Totally focused on the screen.  They were not thinking about what they were going to do after the movie or later that night – they were ‘in the moment’.  So, I took my cue from the boys, relaxed, sat back in the comfy movie chair, and totally enjoyed myself, too!

How could being in the moment change your life?  I know that when I’m working in my office and am ‘in the moment’ I am incredibly productive.  I know that when I’m talking with my husband and if I stay in the moment we have great talks.  I know that when I’m coaching a client and I stay in the moment with that client we get a lot done.

How can you ‘be in the moment’ today?

  1. My seven year old daughter inspires me! She was in a little talent show at our library today as part of the summer reading program. She chose to read a story (Sheila Rae the Brave, by Kevin Henkes). As I sat watching her in front of the group, reading with inflection, feeling, and projection and using eye contact, I was amazed by what she is doing! I noticed that I was nervous for her and of course my eyes were teary. I was so proud of her! She is not only brave but excited about being in front of people!

    Speaking is a new thing for me. I started feeling comfortable in front of people gradually about 3 years ago. I truly believe that it is an act of God! When I watch my daughter I am inspired.

    After the children finished their pieces, there was time for additional performances. My daughter volunteered to sing a song, This Little Light of Mine. How fitting!

    I drove home from Sioux Falls yesterday looking at dangerous yet completely awesome storm clouds in front of me. I even stopped a few times to take pictures of this incredible artwork God had put in front of me. I know I should have been paying complete attention to my driving, but I was so “in the moment” with the weather and the sky, its different shades of blue, from peaceful to threatening, it made me think about becoming a weather spotter.

    I watched a beautiful sunset last evening, in much the same way as Stephanie did. I just love looking at cloud formations, colorations, etc. How they move and change and can look so different – from light, airy, bubbly to dark, angry and menacing and a lot more. The sunset had beautiful shades of red, orange, purple, blue, yellow, grey – as I watched and enjoyed, it continued to move and re-form. What amazing beauty!!!
