How present am I?

 

This season every title of the QBR interviews will double up as a journal prompt for our community's exploration. This week's prompt is brought to us by my conversation with Marisa Ribordy.

For me, right now, this is what is going on beneath the surface...

Today's prompt comes at a time of a really important crossroads. More things are happening behind the scenes for my business than ever before. A steady flow of giving and receiving has been born. A cycle that was not always the case for me in the past. And with it has arrived this acute awareness of my level of presence in any given moment.

Right now, there are days where I feel myself being right here and now happens with absolute ease. And there are days where, even after unplugging from work for the day, I find myself daydreaming about an idea, while I'm watching a show, or wanting to reply to Instagram comments when I'm making breakfast. Because multi-tasking is totally, still something I do. 

My desire to consistently and continuously embody being present has give way to a sensitivity in my life. I actually catch when I am not being as in the moment as I can be! And while I'll ideally I'd rather never have it happen, that's not real life. In real life, it's going to happen and when it does I'm learning to be grateful for the chance to notice where I can invite a new way to do things.

So for me, this questions feels more like a moment to moment invitation to notice how in that moment I am, on any given day. It's a chance to remind myself that I want to be where ever I am with all of my heart, and by committing to being awake enough to witness the ebb and flow I am already practicing presence in a very special way.
