Yesterday I nearly ran over a kid who walked in front of my car as I was pulling into a shopping center from a busy intersection. He didn’t see me as he was texting while he walked. When I jammed on the brakes he looked up for a second, shrugged, and kept texting as he walked ahead. How willing we are to not be 100% responsible for ourselves, expecting others to take that role. It also gave me pause about our distracted natures, the doing of two things at the same time, the lack of awareness that we are not here a lot of the time. I will be paying more attention to when I let go of my full attention surrendering to the multi-tasking habit. I want my eyes here now on what I am doing fully attentive to what is. Bless him for bringing this to my attention.
