Pay Attention

It’s so easy to get distracted. We all have goals and dreams that we want to see, but distraction becomes a road blocker. Recently, I’ve been all into myself. Like REAL into myself. Started paying attention to what I was thinking, how I was feeling, what I was attracted to and the list could go on. What I found out was that my taste changed.

I no longer desired the same people or things – I was into some top shelf stuff! I started researching places to travel solo, started forming connections with people in other career interests and hobbies I’d enjoy. When being serviced, I stopped cheating myself and went for quality because I had to keep my investment game strong! I fed into my cravings because they were healthy. I’m not just talking about food, but my cravings for specific conversations, my idea of spontaneous acts and simply just doing what made me feel good.

I realized that most things were not what they seemed. People reneged and fell backwards. Had I been so into any and everything else besides myself I wouldn’t have caught it. Although I explained and express my concerns – individuals still didn’t change. Some experiences weren’t really worth it lol. When I look at things now, I can truly see that I wasn’t focused.

Take time not just after reading this post but everyday to truly pay attention. Stop giving so much of your time to the trends of this world and what’s going happening on social media. Your life is important. Your time is important. The best way to truly learn is to direct your attention to what’s happening inside and around you.

  1. I totally relate to this! Sometimes I focus some much on the big picture that I miss out on the current moments. Thanks for the encouragement to be intentional with paying attention!

  2. I think people are so easily distracted especially with celeb and news and gossip, they arent paying attention to their own needs. Escapism is a thing but we should get more awaken on real things on healing and learning the world and ourselves better.

  3. I learned to do this a few years ago. I don’t know why it didn’t come naturally for me. I felt obligated to say to things I did not want to do.

    When I started saying no to those things and yes to me, my interest, and family live got much better and happier.
