Today’s practice is to pay attention to any stories you have the opportunity to experience and to remove yourself from the environment of any story that doesn’t inspire you. Stories come in many forms and might reach us in the guise of a movie, a book, a video, a group conversation, an article, essay, or headline. In order to grab our attention stories are becoming more and more sensationalized. If we’re operating on automatic, our reptilian brain locks in on these sensationalized accounts and takes the full ride without considering their usefulness — and often without remembering that we are ultimately responsible for the quality of our moment to moment experience and the impressions we digest. We are not obligated to commit our precious time to stories that leave us empty-handed in the end. If you find yourself audience to an inferior story, you can stop Pretending You Don’t Matter by excusing yourself to find one worthy of your attention.
