00:42

Hello, amazing human and beautiful soul, jumping off of our last episode’s topic about the future storytelling, today’s topic is another one of my favorites. 

Becoming present is a great way to turn off the autopilot mode of your life. Whether it's playing a board game, taking in a sunrise or a sunset, reading, or whatever it is, that helps you “be.”  There’s a book all about this. It’s The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle. It's a great book. I’ll admit,  I’ve read it multiple times and even created a book discussion for it in the Empty Nest Success home, and you may join that anytime. 

Have you ever paid attention to how often you catch yourself mentally nowhere near where your body actually is - those moments or sometimes hours or days where we go through the motions of life yet our thoughts are continually not where we are physically. 

Maybe it’s replaying the past; worried about the future; working through a conversation that has already happened or has yet to happen.

Now, this isn’t always a bad thing, for sure, but becoming conscious of even just a little bit of this time and learning to direct your thoughts where you want to focus is an incredible skill to learn. 

After all, we are human be-ings. Be. Just be.

The ability to tune into where you are; to be present; tuning into the now, is a fun activity to be able to do. In the last episode, I discussed catching the moments where we are dropping into scenarios of life that aren’t “now.” Being aware of this, brings the ability to choose where you place yourself, and also choose, “now.”

By catching that “drop in” moment, you can then tune in and ask yourself things like, “Wait a minute, where am I focused right now? What am I doing? Am I going through the motions? Do I want to be going through the motions? Do I want to be more present? Or, What can I do to become present? 

Noticing you want to choose to be more present? Then, this is where the top of your toolbox items may come in handy.  

Sometimes, it's as easy as taking a few deep breaths. Other times, it's doing an activity, maybe taking a walk outside, you'll figure out what works for you and, also, your list may change over time. 

Often, those top of the toolbox items you’ve already noted are the ones that have the ability to bring you into the present moment. I love how that happens!

03:36

[level-up music]

Your journal prompt for today is on a scale from 1-10, how present are you in life? Here’s a bonus one: Do you want more presence moving forward?

 [exit music - upbeat]

Thanks for listening today! Tune into where you are - see if you’re present - and don’t you dare forget that you are amazing! 

Chat next time!

93: The CEO Toolbox Part 4B: When Your Life Stops Moving Forward – Analysis Tool Walkthrough

Hello, my ah-mazing empty nest friend,

Continuing in the series of your life’s toolbox, I walk you through the CEO (Conscious Effective Olympian) Analysis Tool. We set up the tool in the last episode, and now it is time to dive in. If it resonates with you, I ask you to consider placing it in the foundational level of your toolbox. Use this as a key resource to get the momentum moving again when you find that yours halts.

I also share my first two-star review – and enjoy doing so!

My empty nest friend, I want you to do amazing things in your life, and until you understand how much power you are giving away to the world by not understanding what is within your own control, you will continue to limit yourself.
