☆  focus  集中する


If you focus on something, you pay attention to it, you concentrate on it, or deal with, rather than dealing with other topics. For example, this past month, my siblings and I have been focused on clearing out my mum’s apartment and selling off the items we no longer needed that weren’t sentimental.

There was a lot to sort through, and it required us to focus on it almost 24-7. Strangely though, it was good to be focusing on something other than feeling sad and grieving. Interestingly, my mother had been trying to clear out a lot of stuff, but she couldn’t really focus on it, so she only managed to declutter a small amount over the last year. On the other hand, we had a deadline of just 4 weeks, so we were able to focus on the task and get it done in a very short time.

What are you focusing on right now?
