As we grow older, we often become more aware of the passing of time and the limitations that time imposes on our lives. We may become preoccupied with the past or anxious about the future, which can detract from our ability to fully engage with the present moment.
It is important to focus on the good in our lives and to move towards things that bring us happiness and joy. By doing so, we will naturally leave behind the negative aspects of life that may be weighing us down.
We often leave ourselves vulnerable to negative emotions and experiences by failing to maintain healthy boundaries, by dwelling on negative thoughts, or by allowing ourselves to be influenced by external factors beyond our control. By leaving our door open to negative emotions and experiences, we create a space for them to enter into our lives and take hold.
Focus is not just about being productive or getting things done, but also about making intentional choices about where we direct our attention. Recognize the importance of saying “no” to distractions and non-essential tasks, in order to create space for the things that really matter.
