Our lives would change if we could learn to live mindfully, consciously...at all times. Every moment counts...we can't get them back once they are gone. Time wasted in life doing things or being with people that are not aligned with our spirit are a waste of our time here on this earth. We have to make decisions that are aligned with who we are and where we want to be. Those things that are not going with us should be let go so we can focus on what IS important and necessary for our journey. There are a million distractions in this world and most of them can be called a test of our faith/spirit. The weak give in and the strong remain true to who they are (because they already know)...refusing to allow their soul to get off track. It's a battle for everyone...but if we can remain conscious of who we are and make our decisions based on that, we are honoring who God created us to be. It is so important to surround ourselves with those people that are like minded/spirited and don't allow the lower energy people in that show up to lead us off our Divine Path. They tempt us to stray...and straying off 'the path' only causes delays in our destiny and pain from making poor decisions not aligned with God's Will for our life. Living consciously keeps us in the flow of God's goodness and blessings and allows Him to lead us where He wants us to go. 
Make decisions that honor your soul.
