On Mindfulness


    There are days without excitement-the ordinary days; no inspiration, no particular meetings, no prospect of fun. The everyday routine at work and at home; the tiding up, the food-making, bit of reading and telly watching-the everyday activities, the same people, the same tasks. Nothing happens; another normal and uninteresting day.

    When I take a closer look at such days I can see a great value in them.

    When I take a closer look at such days I discover situations and happenings that proved to be very important and significant for my happiness. And sometimes I reproach myself for not noticing them, for ignoring and overlooking them completely at that time. I regret not being fully present then and there.

    I don’t want to make this mistake anymore. I want to be present and conscious of my own life at every moment in spite of the judgement I put on it. I want to taste my days, I want to feel them. I want to be mindful. It is my life and every second of it is precious to me.

    Angie Clifford Not risen from bed yet, and on my first cup of coffee, your smiling profile picture and lovely name ( my Grandaughter is an Isabelle) seems so much more interesting spelt with a Z! Yes I agree with you every moment of every day is precious.
