Could you be living distracted? Over the last few weeks we’ve looked at the five indications we may be living distracted, and today we address the last of the five: if you cannot enjoy now.

Let’s begin today with three questions:

When you’re with others, are you able to enjoy their company?

When you have a quiet moment alone, can you appreciate the moment you’re in or do your thoughts pull you elsewhere?

Do you have a difficult time staying present in this precise moment while noticing the sights, smells, tastes, and feelings associated with the reality around you?

If you answered yes to any of these, they may indicate you struggle to live in the moment and you cannot enjoy now.

If you’re realizing these describe you–that you cannot enjoy now, let me tell you, you’re not alone. Yours truly also battles this. So, I get it if you struggle with staying present in the moment. I’m right there with you most days. And if you don’t battle this, I’m guessing you know someone who does. You might want to share this episode with him or her.

Distractions are almost always the culprits in preventing us from living in the moment and appreciating the present.

Distractions will always entice us from what’s most important to fixate on less important matters. They will always make us believe there’s a better moment than right now. They will always keep our minds spinning and our bodies hurrying, while we miss the beautiful moment happening right in front of us.

Nothing will change unless we take proactive steps in changing how we live. Namely committing to live an undistracted, intentional life.

As I say often, life is too important to live it distracted. I’m cheering you on as you live as a Right-Now Woman! God bless you!
