Be where you are when you are there!
One of my wise friends often shares his favorite life quote...

“Be where you are when you are there!” It is a simple thought, but it can impact so many of our life situations. The core thought has been around for a long time as “Present Moment Living.” Both should remind us to enjoy the moment we are in. We can implement that for ourselves and with others across generational lines to enhance our experiences. A major fault comes from being distracted by electronic “conveniences.” Too often we make the person in front of us a second priority and put a “device” ahead of them. I challenge you to think more about how your cell phone or tablet relates to your relationships. Your attitude determines your experience.
        Your attitude also impacts the way you act. Do you act alive or old beyond your years? OLLI members seem to have chosen to live the active life of learning and socializing. This helps keep you involved in life and relationships. It also makes you a more pleasant person to be around. Keep it up, and keep OLLI going. Be where you are when you are there!
