Full disclosure: I failed on Day 2! Yup. It was a day spent lacing and unlacing skates, making food and cleaning up from food, and I am on call. Just at supper time, calls came rolling in amounting to about 14 hours of work starting at 6pm.
I rushed off to work only to realize that I had not been mindful even for a moment. Not even during the precious 5 minutes when Micah and I skated a loop holding hands without a fall or a problem.
Oh well, I have been told that when you are meditating it is all about “starting over” whenever your attention wanders. And that it is OK.
I will start over. Admittedly, my sleep deprived state will make this more of a challenge.
Happy Mindful Monday to you all.
