What came to my attention most was how long I had been at the beach and never payed attention to all that beauty. How preoccupied I was with my own seemingly important stuff and had I not ever really looked up to pay attention I would have missed those amazing moments. Yikes am I spending too much time in another world and NOT paying attention to the here and now? It was a good wake up call and I was quickly reminded that I am much better off staying in the present and observing all the goodness and beauty in my everyday life. I would hate to think that at the end of my life I missed living in the present because I was too preoccupied with living in the past and the future. So at that moment I made a pledge to myself to put aside my worries and instead focus on the present and enjoy each moment as it comes!
Where are you living?
