Life is so subtle sometimes that you barely notice yourself walking through the doors you once prayed would open.
The magic happens in the in-between, moment by moment. Sometimes I spend so much time in the ‘’what next?’’ that I become blind to ‘’what is’’.
And I have to tell you, the ‘what is’ is pretty damn wonderful. Learning to be mindful.
What is Mindfulness?
To live in the moment, or now, means being conscious, aware and in the present with all of your senses. It means not dwelling on the past, nor being anxious or worrying about the future.
“The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future, or anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly.”
