Mindfulness is hard

For me, committing to, following through and remaining focused on mindfulness is tough. I’m on day five and while I have only missed one evening practice (because I did it in bed and fell asleep…), I’ll have to admit that three minutes often feels long. I start out listening only to my breathing. I try to find the cadence soothing and clearing. I notice the ambient sounds in the room or in the house or on the street. And then I start to think about what I’ll write. Or how I’d like to serve a particular client that day. Or what I’m going to have for lunch….

At the same time, some great moments have spilled into my day. I noticed I was more present with my niece and goddaughter on July 4th. Molecules of inspiration have popped.

I’m fascinated to experience what comes next.
