Use the old good china. Put pizza on it if you want. Gaze out the window and enjoy the colours. Cuddle with whomever is in your bubble. Decorate the door even if no one else sees it. Listen to the leaves rattle in the trees. Smell the change that rain brings to the air and take a deep breath.
I’ve written about this before. Life in a trauma OR definitely had an impact in my life but so did cancer and MVA’s to name a few. We aren’t guaranteed a certain number of days nor what their quality will be.
So I used the china. I stopped and watched a butterfly. I threw the ball for crazy dogs. I cuddled my soul mate and recognized how wonderful that felt. That’s my take on today.
Is there a specific that reminds you of how precious life is? Or one special thing that helps you practise mindfulness?
Ps I know that there are mundane tasks and difficult times that make being mindful a challenge. The test is, I believe, how you center yourself as you go about these times.
