Especially in the lives of those we love, and in the lives of our children, in particular, it is useful to do everything we possibly can to be present. It means a LOT to others when we pay attention to them and do more than just be there in the same space, physically.
We can choose to really care enough to focus our attention on them, share our energy and presence with them, and let them know how much they mean to us. In this world of distractions, may we regularly choose to turn off the television, put down the phone, set all of the distractions aside, and really be present.
In the practice of presence, we are complete and whole. The book, THE POWER OF NOW, teaches how to truly practice being present, and optimize the enjoyment of this life to the fullest. The more whole and complete we feel, the more we can do for others.
Today I will strive to be as present as I possibly can be in the lives of those who mean the most to me while I am around them. I will practice choosing them over any distraction.

It is through adding value to others by sharing and spreading wisdom, that we become more valuable as individuals, and collectively, as a whole, we all become wiser.
Remember: Mindset matters. Character counts. That which we choose to consistently focus on is what EXPANDS in our lives. WE CREATE our personal realities.
