This week I lost hours of work because I wasn’t concentrating and it made me realise that I haven’t been concentrating for ages. My focus is so often ‘elsewhere’ that I have to wonder how I’m getting anything done. All too often I have that feeling of ‘coming to’ in the middle of a task and wondering what I’m doing. Part of me is easy on myself because this is what happens when we try to do too much at once; but the another part of me is asking “what’s happening elsewhere that’s so bloody good anyway?” Where is my mind when it’s not present?
While I was busy redoing the writing piece that I accidentally trashed, I found this during a moment of understandable procrastination. It made me giggle, but I had to watch to the end to make me think. There is such freedom in self-awareness:
Other things that had me this week:
Reading – this piece on choosing connection, not perfection.
Writing – my thoughts for the new year.
Making – elf donuts which were a total hit with the kids!
Wishing – for focus.
Loving – this photography blog. I can’t get enough.
Wondering – if I should take part in – rather than volunteer at – my brother in law’s community race next March? Ho ho ho!
