Regardless of your role in your family, it’s important to lead by example. Our actions empower those around us, so it’s important to lead in a way that inspires our family to do better and be better. Single, committed, married, divorced, kids, step kids, or extended family—it all belongs here.
Have you ever felt like your presence is a present? It’s the feeling you get when gratitude overwhelms you because somehow you know you’re exactly where you’re meant to be with the people you’re meant to be with. You don’t feel pulled by something else or distracted—you just feel pure joy. These are the moments you’re so engaged with others that time seems to stop, and you wouldn’t really care if it did.
These moments seem to be increasingly rare. Social media steals our focus; alerts and notifications interrupt our interactions; and work obligations never stop running around in our mind long enough for us to appreciate the present moment.
Today’s #OolaYLChallenge is to put down your phone from 4 to 7 p.m.
We aren’t saying ignore your kids’ phone calls or don’t call your mom. We mean keep off social media, stay away from apps and digital games, and be engaged in the moment. Giving up your phone for three hours allows you to spend a brief amount of time focused on being present in your relationships. Recognize and appreciate what a blessing these moments are.
While you spend your three hours away from your devices, we suggest diffusing Family™ essential oil blend. Its aroma will support feelings of unconditional love, patience, and respect.
As always, thanks for reading my blog!! I hope today has an amazing you!!!
