Q&Q “Your conscious presence
in your own life is powerful.
It’s a gift to be present—a gift for you and
for whomever you share your life with.”
Maria Shriver

I often find my mind wandering. It’s a time of complete relaxation and self-indulgence and that’s okay when I am alone and don’t need to be focused on anything in particular. I think of this wandering as a gift to myself and it sometimes leads to a wonderful awakening within me.  It’s not okay when my mind wanders when I am with someone. Then it is just rude, like giving them a beautifully wrapped gift box with nothing in it.

Have you ever thought of your conscious presence
as a gift to yourself and others?

  1. It’s like recharging your batteries, but it must be done when one is alone. You’re right, it would be rude if you were with someone.

    Have a fabulous day and weekend. ♥

    1. Yes, it’s rude to wander when with someone but if I get bored it’s a struggle to stay with them. Doesn’t happen often but sometimes off I go who knows where.

  2. IMO, it’s healthy for our minds to wander. It’s a way to relax and renew. Of course, as you mentioned, it’s okay when we’re alone but rude when we’re with someone.

  3. When I was younger, I was often accused of drifting off as someone spoke having no idea I did this. I think it was the writer in me daydreaming already embarking into the future. With my manners cleaned up, I will sit and think and drift for my own sake since, it’s nature’s way of saying, put your feet up, rest your mind awhile. A lovely essay as always. Susannah

    1. In school, my wandering mind was a big problem! I was more focused when I worked. Now that I am retired I seem to be reverting to my youthful ways. I am enjoying it!
