As you said "Every moment is a chance again" .
My intention for today "is to continue this wonderful mindfulness journey again in my life"
Thanks for the question JP! The thing that stands out for me is the move my partner and I have made from the city to the country. We have always longed to live closer to nature and so we finally realized we could do it, adapting our life as was needed. I think mindfulness supported this because it has helped me to really listen to myself - to honour what I care about, what brings me joy, and what nourishes me on a soul level.
Thank you for these reflections, Rick - and for drawing my attention back to this question. Mindful pauses are so important, but we can forget to practice them. It's good to remind ourselves.
My intention for today (or the rest of it) is to move slowly - to mind if I am trying to rush somewhere (either physically or mentally) and to slow down through a few mindful breaths when I notice this tendency arise.
That's inspiring, Gillian.
My Intention today, is to take a Mindful Pause before I react to a situation; reacting will only place me in an Amygdala Hi-Jack. Not that that is my usual style, just that I am more aware today.
Sometimes, I will saunter to my backyard and just view the clouds in the sky or just listen to the birds...there are many mindful moments about communing in Nature that awaits us if we just stop and be present.
