The concept of mindfulness has been on my mind of late. Ironic, I know.
What is mindfulness, really?
Living in the moment—also called mindfulness—is a state of active, open, intentional attention on the present. When you become mindful, you realize that you are not your thoughts; you become an observer of your thoughts from moment to moment without judging them. Mindfulness involves being with your thoughts as they are, neither grasping at them nor pushing them away. Instead of letting your life go by without living it, you awaken to experience.
As I continue to evolve and change, I ask myself why is a state of mindfulness, or living in the moment so important to me? Letting Go and Letting In…Forgetting About the Past…Releasing the Future.
