Our Centre of Attention

Sometimes life feels like a car drifting down the freeway…

Focusing only on what is ahead of us, rather than taking the time to enjoy the sights passing us by.

Like they say, it’s not about the destination but rather the journey.

We often find ourselves focussing more on the destination than acknowledging the journey.

When spontaneous events take place during a short period of time, we do not usually take the time to reflect upon what has taken place.

We easily lose sight and fail to value these life events, and by not cherishing these moments as much as the major highlights of our lives.

Not only, do these memories fade away, but we also lose track of the people we have met, and the things we have experienced.

This causes more harm than good to us, and I can confirm through my own experience in life.

I have neglected the present for far too long, which has caused me to miss out on the happiness which surrounded me. By only looking ahead, I have failed to take breaks to breath or to reflect on what I have accomplished thus far.
