Have you seen the someecard that goes, “Men, if you ever wanna know what a woman’s mind is like, imagine a browser with 3,241 tabs open. All. The. Time.”? I don’t know about you ladies, but couldn’t me more true for me. Being present is honestly one of the hardest things I’m trying to work on these days!
Some of the most common things that prevent people from having a peaceful day are work, internet, social media, digital distractions, children, chores, lack of control, and our own crazy minds.
I know one of the biggest issues I personally have with being fully present is comparing myself to others, both in my personal and work life. I’m constantly comparing myself to other bloggers (their pictures are prettier! their websites are prettier! they have more followers! don’t we all do this??) which I know needs to stop. InspiredRD wrote a great post about this yesterday about being careful not to measure our self worth by numbers on a screen.
