Today as we talk about Mindfulness I want you to think of the most powerful thing you have EVER seen…a bulldozer, wrecking ball, dirt mover, etc. Think about the power of the engine and how it has this amazing ability to transform the earth and everything around it. YOUR mind is SO much more powerful than that!!! If you ever take the time to read about the power of the mind it will baffle you and transform the way you view the world.
Quiet your mind
YOU have the power to control your emotions, your relationships and your life’s goals when you can control the thoughts that you think and focus on every day. People have 90% of their thoughts repeat in their minds day after day after day. You need to be able to quiet your mind and think about the things you are GRATEFUL for. A beautiful sun beam on a cloudy day, a smile from a coworker telling you it’s OK, a soft bed and sheets to rest on at the end of a day. We tend to take too much for granted and focus on the things we can’t have as Americans instead of focusing on the things we ARE given.
Each day is a gift – Mindfulness
Take one thing each day and just focus on the goodness of it. Open that one thing in your mind like a present wrapped up especially for you and ready for you to fully appreciate. It can be good food, a meaningful conversation, or whatever the day brings. My grandma always said that each day was a gift made especially for us….that’s why it’s called the PRESENT. Forget about tomorrow’s concerns…they will be there when you get there.
