My word for 2016 is
I love being able to look down and have a constant reminder to be a better me. Being mindful is not an easy discipline. But to be present in any given moment, I need to learn to let go. I've been hanging on to a bit a garbage lately. Some things I can't do anything about so I jot these concerns in my journal and write these words,
"I release this into the universe."
Letting go...I mean REALLY letting go of something means that you can't revisit it. I feel that if I am hanging on to old stuff, I can't live in the present moment. There's no room to use my senses and be completely aware of what's going on around me. I don't want to live in an automatic mode-I want to fully appreciate everything from opening my eyes every morning in the warmth and comfort of my bed to actually being grateful at doing the most mundane of chores. Doing laundry and dusting my home means I'm fortunate enough to have a home to actually do these tasks.
The world is a scary and uncertain place these days & being less judgmental and critical is how I hope to help humanity.
I'm aware that there is a balance that must be struck between being open with awareness and being sensible but I look forward to the daily practice of being mindful.
