Sometimes it is difficult to stay focused when the world has so much to throw at you. When life begin to pile up and you just don’t think you can take it anymore, it pays to be vigilant. So what is vigilance? Vigilance is the ability to stay focused on the task at hand no matter what the outside circumstances are. To stay up to date on what it is you need to do and having the tools needed to accomplish these goals without having to get distracted by what is happening outside of those goals. As a mom, I must do this all the time, but it goes further than that.
Anyone can be vigilant, all it takes is knowing what is expected of you and how to do it without having too much invested in blocking out the other things. Staying invested in the goal and staying focused on what it takes to accomplish it. Whether it is parenting or plumbing, there is something to be said about people that are able to stay vigilant and the world needs more of them.
The truth of the matter
Is that this is much easier than it sounds, but it is not impossible. If there is one thing I have learned from parenting it is that you need to stay vigilant to be a good parent and that you do not really have a choice. Perhaps we should look at it like that, life is hard and staying vigilant is key.
