power of presence

As the sun sets over the city, I find myself sitting on the balcony of my apartment, lost in thought. I have always been fascinated by the concept of attention, and how it has the power to shape our lives and the world around us.

In a world where there are endless distractions vying for our attention, it can be difficult to focus on anything for very long. We are constantly bombarded with notifications and alerts, pulled in different directions by our various obligations and responsibilities. It is no wonder that many of us feel overwhelmed and exhausted at the end of the day.

But there is something special about those moments when we are able to fully immerse ourselves in a task or a person. When we give our undivided attention to something, we are able to see it more clearly, to understand it more fully. We are able to appreciate the beauty and complexity of the world around us.

And this is where the concept of generosity comes in. When we give our attention to someone or something, we are giving a gift. We are showing that we value that person or thing, that we are willing to make time for it, to engage with it fully. It is a simple but powerful act, one that can have a profound impact on the world around us.

So perhaps the next time you find yourself feeling overwhelmed or distracted, try taking a moment to focus on something or someone. Give your full attention, and see what happens. You might be surprised at the difference it can make.


“Persistence” – Original Fine Art from The Border Of a Mind Studios

Failure is only a temporary setback on the road to success, as long as you have the courage and ambition to keep trying. Persistence is the key to victory.

We have all experienced failure at some point in our lives. Maybe we didn’t get the job we wanted, or we didn’t get accepted into our dream school. Maybe we failed a test or a project at work didn’t turn out the way we wanted. Whatever the situation, it’s easy to feel discouraged and want to give up.

But here’s the thing: failure is not the end. It’s simply a temporary setback on the road to success. As long as you have the courage and ambition to keep pushing forward, you can turn that failure into a success.

One of the keys to turning failure into success is persistence. It’s easy to get discouraged and give up when things don’t go your way. But if you keep pushing, if you keep trying, you will eventually achieve your goals. The habit of persistence is the habit of victory.

So if you’re feeling down about a recent failure, don’t give up. Remember that failure is only a temporary setback, and with courage and persistence, you can turn it into a victory. Keep pushing forward, and don’t let anything stand in your way.
