What Does It Mean to Be Present?

A few years ago I discovered a book called: What Does It Mean to Be Present? by Rana Diorio.


I was surprised how often we use the words “present” to mean a wide range of things such as:


“Does it mean showing up in class?”

“Does it mean sharing something at show and tell?”

“Does it mean wrapping yourself up?”


“Being present means living in the moment. It means realizing that … yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, and today is a gift – that’s why we call it the present!”


What does it mean to be present for you?
