This Is Where You Are | Wallpaper by Breanna Rose

When it comes to desktop backgrounds, I tend to fancy wallpaper on the simple ( go figure ) side of things. And it just occurred to me that I hadn’t been doing much of that lately in this column, so I went back to the basics and used a phrase I’ve been repeating in my head a LOT. I’ve written about the sentiment of being present in the past, but it’s truthfully something that I have to work hard at each and everyday. It’s just how I’m wired. So when I find myself wandering into future land or worrying about things I don’t need to be, I simply say “this is where you are” or “this is who you are” to remind myself to be just here, right now. This desktop is already on my computer as a visual reminder, which certainly helps while at work! Plus, this design is borrowed from a rejected client comp that I enjoyed enough to recycle in a meaningful way. You can download in various sizes below! I hope it can help some of you, too.

    Thanks for this- I’ve been working so much, working towards my dream of moving to Belize in the fall and building my business into an actual form of income, that I forget that I’m here, now, doing what I love everyday! I think I’m wired to always look for something more, which can make it hard to remember to be present. I love that you recycled a concept like that- there are so many concepts that don’t make the cut with clients that I love and would love to recycle like this!

  7. This is a beautiful wallpaper! I love how simple it is…and it’s such a great reminder. Too often I spend way too much time worrying about the future, when I just need to live in the moment.

    Beautiful wallpaper! Great job!

  9. Going back to this article, a very good thing to tell yourself in moments of doubts and worries.
    This is one of the things I’d like people to tell about me : “she’s present”. So definitely working on it.
