“A healthy mind say’s it all. As the brain works as a well oiled engine, physical improvement will also increase. With a mind that is not constantly trying to escape itself, advancement in this journey we call life is certain. As the wise old man tells stories of the past to his grandchildren, he grins at the mistakes and stupidity once upon a time. Knowingly expressing the wisdom gained over decades of self-reflection, observation and soul searching unsure if the stories will make an impact upon the deaf ears of the young. Every day that passes we gain a strike on our age, the older we get; the smarter we become, only if you wish to do so.”
Making it a mission to become mindful is one of the most important task’s I’ve taken on in my journey these past few years. To pay close attention to the world around, being sure the same mistakes, failures and uncertainties will not be crossed again. Keep the mind grounded while making decisions.
Are you paying attention to the world around you? Is your focus really on being mindful? Do you understand what is going on?
How often I’ve experienced, watching something happen right in front of me only to turn to the person next to me and say,”What just happened?” Or, catching my eyes rolling through the same line, same sentence in a book I’ve been reading for some time now. Unsure if I’ve fully observed and absorbed the meaning fully.
Allow yourself to learn. Be in the moment and take your time. You deserve to be the best version of yourself at all times.
