So what can I do to get there? Well, first I need to ask myself if my attentions are in compliance with my intentions. When I made my list, I could see that I spend too much time focusing on material objects and cleanliness. I’m easily bothered by messes and constantly “want” things. I know it is not right and realize now how much attention I give to those areas. My intentions lie within my family, my relationships, my faith and my job. They are my big rocks but I still get easily thrown with the small rocks and have a hard time prioritizing because it all seems so important. Second, I need to be present in the moment. I need to focus on the now, be mindful of the future but not lose the precious gifts and moments of today that I often take for granted. Next, I need to be quick to think and not respond especially when I’m at work and talking with friends. I often discuss the negative and can become a complainer. My intention is to be a thoughtful thinker and respond appropriately or maybe not even at all. Last, I need to continue to build my self-talk of happy and positive thoughts. If it is true that my world is a reflection of my thoughts and ideas, then I have no excuse and no reason to complain. I need to get in the driver seat and take charge so that others will see where I’m headed and begin to give their attention to me.
