My gratitude today is for mindfulness. I spent so many years on auto-pilot. I can still lose myself in a movie or a novel. If I consciously choose to do that because I need down time, then that is fine. But if I am using that behavior to avoid feeling something, it isn't okay. Somehow the pain I am avoiding will be revealed, and usually not in a good way. So I am practicing mindfulness. Trying to live my life by being as conscious as possible in each and every moment. Setting intention for what I am doing, and being mindful each step of the way. Not easy, but I sure am more centered.
How about you?
P.S. I am out of town this weekend, but I will catch up with all of you Sunday night.
