Can you suppose we are by now halfway through the year?my mom always told me that move quicker as you get older and i completely have the same opinion.A day goes by and I often Think,did i miss something Today?
It is so effortless to get wedged up in all there is to do and the roles we play in life that we can miss the moment that is before us. I will frequently do something and then understand as I am doing it, that I am thinking of something else. This is the reverse of mindfulness.
Mindfulness is a practice of being completely present with every single minute. It doesn’t mean that we cannot talk about our past by sharing an achievement or suffering or that we don’t sketch for our upcoming by setting goals and scheduling trips, but relatively, we choose to be fully aware of what we are doing when we are doing it. If we are scheduling a vacation in the future, we give our full concentration to it. If we are working out our past (like in therapy), we give our full attention to it. And if we are cleaning the house, we give our full attention to that.
