Mind - FULL

I think the hardest skill to perfect is how to be "mindful."
We spend so much time living in our thoughts of past and future that we forget to be present.
Between work, school and life events, living in the moment is incredibly difficult to do.



Moments of happiness pass us by because we're too worried about what's going on around us or what might follow, that we don't just sit down and enjoy it.

While our goals and our dreams are certainly important to pursue for the welfare of our futures, enjoying the very second that we are living in, is just as important.


How many of you have ever looked back at a gathering you've hosted and have heard stories of how much fun your family and friends have had while you were running around serving everyone? cleaning up after everyone? etc?

Do you remember sitting down and enjoying any part of that gathering with anyone?  Just taking a moment and looking around or sitting down and sharing a drink with your guests?

We spend so much time, prepping that we forget to engage, to socialize, to bask in the glow of a successful and joyous event.



When I think about all the things I have to get through in the next couple of months, I forget that there are things I'm doing now that should be initiating at least brief moments of happiness.  But I'm too busy worrying about April, July and next year, then what's going on right now.

And so my goal for today is to live IN today.
To breathe in every single second and enjoy it for what it is.
