I wanted to write about getting today right, or living in the present. I know that I struggle with this and I bet I am not the only one. I can think of examples where, instead of being present I am doing something else. My examples would be on my phone at home, (instead of talking) , watching TV, (instead of listening, and the list probably goes on and on. If I struggle, I be everyone else does too.
Why do I struggle with this? Part of my problem is I mutlitask. I do alot of multitasking at work. Multitasking hurts my productivity. I can do it, but to really get things accomplished I need to stay focused. If I am watching TV and talking to Mary Ann. Mary Ann and I may have a lull in the conversation. The TV show is not that great so I go to facebook and read post. Now I am doing three things at once, and the one that is the most interesting (at the moment) gets my attention.
i hear adults talking about their children being on their phone when they (and I) do the same thing. It's probably time to put away the stones and not do any rock throwing.
Another area I struggle with is focusing on tomorrow. What am I going to do on my day off? What project needs done around the house? Can I put if off, for another week? What will I do when I retire? Should I get a job? I can make a big list of things to think and worry about.
The smartest thing I could do is to pray about it, instead of worrying. Let God worry about tomorrow as I do what needs to get done today. That was so easy to type but so hard to live. I decided that i want to blog more. I think I want to engage that creativity side of my brain, in hopes that it will create new ideas for songs. So I will write more. Getting today write.
