I wanted to share something that’s shifted my whole world recently.
I decided to stop living by the confining, constricting, and compartmentalizing notion of time and instead decided to start managing my attention.
Many of us are taught to manage our time (and our money) but not our attention. Attention is a resource far greater than time though. Attention is how we alter time. It’s gold when time is mere silver.
With our attention we can travel slow or fast in time, feel time, release time, escape time, and even stop time.
A deep conversation under the midnight sky can simultaneously slow time and escape it. A breath can release it. A kiss can stop it.
Ten minutes on a treadmill can feel like an eternity while ten minutes under the warm covers in the early morning can feel like an instant. Time expanded and contracted based on our presence with it. Our attention.
Because ultimately, where we invest our attention is where we invest our energy. And everything is energy. All of it.
Channeling that energy; investing it in areas that foster your growth and wellbeing over areas that leak it from your fingertips, is your greatest power.
Life by Design was born out of a need for my own self-healing after decades of unresolved illness. It wasn’t until finding the courage to look within that I discovered it was my own belief system holding me back from experiencing a truly thriving life. We all have access to that thriving life. We just need to rediscover our power and ignite the healing-self. Only then can we unapologetically live a life by our own design.
