Give up the idea of following a step by step guide to show you how being present. We all have this power, to decide, to make this conscious choice to cut off the Internet and social media to look around us. I am taking the train daily, and I see everyone, practically everyone glued to their mobiles.
Why ? because someone smart had this idea to create so much possibility for these tiny or considerable mobiles to hold everything: music, calls and an astronomical number of apps that we can do everything with them.
And this is the problem. Instead of connecting with people around us, we connect with this gem of technology, and we cannot live without it. Is it really what you' re going to become? A slave of the modern technology?
No, if consciously, you decide to take back your power and to make a choice to cut off social media when you want.
You have this power. Take it back and look around you :
- All the tiny details that you miss,
- All the opportunities you can have just by being more conscious,
- The light bulb moments of creativity,
- The inspiring ideas popping in your mind when you do not expect it,
- Open your perspective
- Shift your mindset by challenging the status quo
Dance to your heart content, there is so much more out there to live, to enjoy and to appreciate. Make a choice to see it.
