This is a reminder for you to stop and connect your brain with your body. This is what people mean when they say ‘be present’ which is easy to say, but not always easy to do. You are not away making dinner tonight; you are not at work giving that presentation you’ve been dreading; you’re not days, weeks or months in the past saying the thing you wish you hadn’t said; you’re not snoozing your alarm for the third time on Wednesday morning.
No. You are right here.
This is your reminder to take a minute without plans, without missed opportunities, without people asking for your time. Wiggle your toes, place your hand on your heart and feel it beating, take a deep breath and remember you can only do what you’re doing. And be grateful.
Because you are right here.
