“To be everywhere is nowhere”– Seneca
Raise your hand if your brain sometimes feels like that picture up there.
Our heads are often swarming (I see what I did there) with all kinds of thoughts. That’s fine, really – our brains were made to think. However, we can only ever truly focus on one thing at a time. That means
a lot of those most thoughts are just distractions from what we’re focusing on.
Today, Five Minutes in the Morning challenges us to ask ourselves, “What am I going to achieve today?”
Take a few minutes (like, say, five) to think about your answer. Write it down and put it somewhere you know you’ll see it.
If you’re the kind of person who buzzes (I did it again) from one place to another, write it down on multiple pieces of paper and distribute them around the places you know you’ll be(e) (I’m not sorry).
When you sense your attention wandering – and it will wander – bring your focus back to your goal for the day.
Here’s what I wrote:
Today, I will see the light in everyone.
Now, even though I wrote this almost two months ago, something one of my dear spiritual friends said in his latest lunar forecast video really resonated with me: we are all rays of light from the same source.
Some people shine bright, and sometimes it’s harder to see others shine, but thinking about each of us coming from the same light source has made all the difference.
Shine on, dear readers.
