Letting Down the Anchor

Lisa Rice wrote this.

I recently celebrated my birthday. Another year I’ve learned, lived and loved.

*Learned more about the art of voiceover and life in general.

*Lived some moments that will always bring a smile.

*Loved the people I’m blessed to call family and friends.

As a child, I couldn’t wait to be one year older. My perspective has definitely changed. In fact, some days I wish I could make time stand still. Since I’ve given up on that idea, I’ve embraced another…staying anchored in the moment. By this, I mean focusing on what I’m doing instead of what I’m about to do or have just done.

Have you tried it? Next time you’re with friends or family stop and anchor yourself in the moment.

*Listen to the sounds nearby.

*Take a deep breath and smell the aromas encircling you.

*Watch the expressions of everyone with you.

*Look in their eyes. Take time to notice something new.

There’s a verse in the twenty-seventh book of Proverbs that says, “Boast not yourself of tomorrow; for you do not know what a day may bring forth.”

None of us are guaranteed tomorrow. Today is a gift ready to be opened. I’m planning some anchor time. How about you?
