Day 3 – Zoning In

One Month to Love!
This was an awesome book, check out my review and I wanted to share with y’all the “important” parts to me. This is by far not what the whole book is about, but just a glimpse of what I thought was catching, or needed to be shared. I will be going through each day, as this will be sorta like my “journal”.

There are 4 weeks involved:
Week 1: The Art of Being All There
Week 2: The Art of Acting Intentionally
Week 3: The Art of Risking Awkwardness
Week 4: The Art of Letting Go

Day 3 of Week 1: Zoning In

Zoning

I love you for the smallest things, bluebells on my desk, a pat on the head when I make an awful speech, a cup of tea in the middle of a deadline panic, being the only one to tell me that the green skirt really does make me look like a sack of potatoes. And the big things; giving me the best things in your life, sharing my joys, being kind to me in all my failings and giving me courage. ~Helen Thomson

Only through focus can you do world-class things, no matter how capable you are. ~Bill Gates

It’s not just that they want you to acknowledge them, it’s that they need to know they’re important to you.

“Wherever you are, be all there”

First, a conscious effort to clear my mind of outside distractions.
Second, to step into the other person’s world, which simply means to focus on what the other person’s joy or need or hurt really is.

Being fully focused in your relationships isn’t efficient, but here’s the great news it’s stunningly effective!

Lasting Love Relationship Challenge
1) Who have you known who made you feel like they were all there for you? How did their life impact yours? How can you do the same for the important people in your life?
2) How can you refocus your vision to see others needs in spite of your own?
3) When you’re with them (one of the key people – in person), focus on them wholly, block out your own needs and worries, and consciously make them the most important person in your world. Afterward, write down your impressions of what happened as a result.

In case you missed it:
Day 1 – The Most Important Thing
Day 2 – Face to Face
