"Wherever you are, be all there." - Jim Elliot
I read this quote yesterday and just loved it. I have found myself telling my children something similar in reguards to texting and answering their phones all the time. I think they are missing out on the moments where they are. Be where you are. You are missing things around you by being so distracted by other things.
I need this advice, too. Worrying can take me out of the present. I can miss out on so much. I can be thinking about what needs to be done, what I am making for dinner, difficulties with my children, financial problems. I can think that the grass is greener somewhere else.
"Wherever you are, be all there."
