Being Present is a Gift

By being present in our interactions, we show genuine interest in the person at hand. Being present is something we don’t always think about, but intentionally striving to be in the present moment will enrich interactions and build more meaningful relationships.

Wherever you are, be all there.

  1. With people becoming more and more entrenched in their online identity, it is harder and harder to obtain being “present.” I have had plenty of instances where people may become upset at me when I become too present and ignore my “online identity.” I couldn’t agree with you more however.

  2. At first I was just going to like it and leave a nice comment, but then I saw the Jim Elliot quote and now you’ve gained a follower. And it’s true! I am always thinking about NEXT year and NEXT month. I think I just need to chill out. So thanks for this!
