* M..M..Moment

mini mindful momentHere is a lovely Mini Mindful Moment that helped me find my Middle Ground today:

Walk Slowly by Danna Faulds

It only takes a reminder to breathe,
a moment to be still, and just like that,
something in me settles, softens, makes
space for imperfection. The harsh voice
of judgment drops to a whisper and I
remember again that life isn’t a relay
race; that we will all cross the finish
line; that waking up to life is what we
were born for. As many times as I
forget, catch myself charging forward
without even knowing where I’m going,
that many times I can make the choice
to stop, to breathe, and be, and walk
slowly into the mystery.

And that is why it is called a practice.

It begins with bringing our attention to our breath.

Patience little ones … and big ones too πŸ™‚

  1. Fantastic! I needed this yesterday when my mind was busy cantering ahead to the “what ifs?” while waiting to hear back from the vet. πŸ˜›

    But, as you note, that’s why it’s called practice. We have to keep bringing ourselves back to the task.
