Some Mindfulness For Today

Practicing mindfulness is a constant learning curve. We all need a reminder now and then to see how important it is to take a step back and become aware of the present moment again. Here a little dose of mindfulness for today to get you back on the right track ๐Ÿ™‚

A Bit of Mindfulness For Today

If you only focus on what isn’t in your life, you will always be lacking something, be it position, love, money, or enlightenment. Let life happen as it happens. Go with it and focus on the fullness of each moment. Let go. Look around you and appreciate the beauty around you. Nothing is just black or white. Everything just ‘is’. Acceptance, appreciation and gratefulness will help you gain your inner balance.

How many times have you travelled somewhere without remember travelling the last few miles. How many times have you eaten a meal without tasting a single bite? How many times have you spoken to your loved ones without appreciation how blessed you are? How many times have you realised that you are ‘existing’ through an experience but not really living and experiencing it?Without focusing on the moment, life passes by in a blur. Discover the world around you. Step out of your comfort zone. Do the trip you always wanted to do. Call that old friend from high school. Remember your forgotten dreams and go and chase them!
Don’t be distracted from living life to the fullest by the intensity of your everyday life. There will always be bills to pay, errands to run, problems to face.
If you only could be somewhere else now, doing something else – being somewhere where you can be free…ย You are free. You are free in this very moment, doing exactly what you are doing. It is all in your mind. The only Zen you will gain through any meditation is the Zen that is already within you. Meditation is just a means to ‘unlock’ it. It’s all in your mind. Try to find your inner balance in every single moment of you life.

    I love the simple explanation. I see a lot about mindfulness on social media but this just sums it up simply.

    So beautifully written and so true. We need to take time for ourselves or we can’t be the best we can be.

    This talks too much reality about life. It’s so inspiring and made me look at my self to examine.

    Great reminder, very timely as well for me. Sometimes we get too caught up in everything that is happening that we forget about ourselves, and the fact that we deserve to be happy.

    Sometimes just being there in the moment can be so hard for me as my mind is off elsewhere overthinking as usual.

    Wow. This was a breath of fresh. I’ve been meditating on my life a little bit and what I need to do better. I think I will sit back and just observe some more about myself. Doing a little soul searching as we speak. Thanks for this. Very inspiring.!

    That’s a very good message. Don’t get too busy with your life that you forget to live it. It’s important that we give ourselves time to do what we want and be where we want to be. Life is too short to focus on one thing.

    I also learn to invest first to yourself especially nontangible, like education, self improvements, and more on experiential travel!

    I have a hard time finding my inner balance sometimes. I am definitely going to meditate and look within myself to try to find my zen. I like that you said that we are free, it’s hard to see that I am free and put myself where I am today, sometimes. Thank you for getting me thinking.

    I have to teach myself how to let things be and enjoy life. A lot of times I get stressed out over things that are beyond my control.

    We always try to be happy with what we have. And not dwell with what we don’t have.

    Yes just being present is the hardest effort for me some days…. My emotions hijack the entire day, LOL. back to the drawing board!

    I agree. The bills will be there when I am done doing me. This is great advice.

    I honestly take every moment of my life in and appreciate all of it. I wake up early to see the sunrise, I work out and listen to my body work hard, I look at my husband with HEART eyes and remind myself of how lucky I am he picked me, and I devour food with extreme happiness! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I have been trying to focus more on the what I have versus what I dont have. It seems easy but it does take some work and mind training.

    My fathers advice to me is salient. Pay yourself first, just as if you are a bill.
