Two and a half years after my very first post on “Being Present,” I’ve learned a few things. Practicing Presence is not yet something I’ve mastered, and based on what I see out there, we all need a refresher. So here are my takeaways.Three Insights on “Being Present”: Everyone’s Present is unique. Without curiosity, you’ll never get “there.”If being “present” doesn’t produce kindness in you, then you’re doing it wrong.So what should we do?Unique: One size doesn’t fit all. Do your own work.  Curiosity: Get curious about you. When you don’t like something, ask “why?” and wait…Kindness: It’s the byproduct of presence. Become an Intentional Optimist!Newsletter:  Optimistic LivingDaily Sharecast (1 min videos):Intentional Optimism Sharecast on Marco PoloCollaborative Group Coaching Community: Launch From The BeachEmail me at andrea@theintentionaloptimist.comJoin me over in the Intentional Optimists Facebook GroupFollow on Instagram @theintentionaloptimistLinkedIn Andrea JohnsonGrab your FREEAndrea's Favorite Planning & Productivity tools“Ultimate DISC communication Cheat Sheet”Need some tools?Mini Course: “Uncovering Your Core Values” Try New Things - 30 Day ChallengeDISC Assessment, 10% discount (code "PODCAST") Noom: A Mindful Way to Eat Learn how to intentionally challenge your mindset in order to take control of your health.Skillshare: Spark your creativity.
