Continuous Partial Attention
In this world we have so many distractions. We have our homes to care for, news, politics, church callings, friends, t.v., our own education and sometimes work. Today a friend introduced me to a new phrase by posting on her facebook (Yet, another distraction!) about it. Her post really socked me in the gut and I felt that someone was telling me something important!
I only have a limited time with my girls. Before I know it they will be grown and moving out. The years are flying by and even though I spend my entire day with them, I have only been giving them “continuous partial attention.” I am guilty, and I admit it.
This year I am making a concerted effort toward giving them more purposeful conscious continuous full attention!
