Day 7: A day at 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?
