Sometimes, when we misplace things and cannot find them, it is because we do not live in the moment. This is usually because we are rushing off to the next moment instead of enjoying the one we are in.
Many people seem more focused on what they are doing in the next five minutes or busy rushing through their life that they miss out on all the little joyful blessings given to them.
When we are too preoccupied with what we will do instead of what we’re doing, we close ourselves off; as if in silent punishment, we ban ourselves from the present.
Often, people are so busy rushing off to somewhere, someone or something, that they lose focus and cannot remember where things were placed. They search, sometimes frantically and with frustration, to find that which has been misplaced.
When we lose something, we can always ask St. Anthony to assist in finding our lost item. He is the finder of lost things. I believe if we’ve lost a piece of ourselves, he could also help us find it again if we ask in sincerity. Remember to say thank you when you find what you are looking for.
Like a deer in the forest, stay alert and live in the moment. If you find you are losing things, slow down enough so that you can remain present in the moment.
