When we fret about the past or worry about the future we are greatly impacting the present moment. Real mindfulness means being consciously, compassionately, and nonjudgmentally present to what is happening right now.
When you live mindfully you taste the juiciness of the orange you are eating, you notice the sparkle in your child’s eyes, you bask in the golden warmth of the sun on your face, you admire the grace of the trees bending in the wind.
You see beyond the people’s words and into their hearts. You take time to be grateful. You take time to listen. You take time to smell the flowers.
When you live mindfully, you feel more open, alive and spacious. And you effortlessly live with more peace, love and joy.
