What would you see if you really look at the world?
Take a minute to think about it, or better yet take a moment to look around you and become aware of what you see.
Part of developing an attitude of gratitude is to develop the ability to be mindful. Please note when I say mindful I don’t mean looking in all the compartments of your brain and discovering all the clutter. Then realizing you still have a draw in there that has a million of your “life goals” you should have achieved by the age of twenty, and here you are in you late twenties and proud of yourself if you are able to make it to work. (Insert panic attack here.)
Okay that’s enough, don’t worry you will most probably find something to trigger your next panic station in about T minus 40 minutes.
And that right there is what I am talking about we are so occupied with our mindFULLness that we are unable to be MINDful. Mindful is the opposite of being mindFULL, it refers to your ability to live in the moment, in the here and now. So I think it is time that you come to your senses.
- Come to Your Senses. “Through our senses—the ability to touch, see, smell, taste, and hear—we gain an appreciation of what it means to be human and of what an incredible miracle it is to be alive. Seen through the lens of gratitude, the human body is not only a miraculous construction, but also a gift.”
Have a great’ful day!
