With my new revelation in place, you would think that finding the ‘mindful moment’ in a day full of moments would be easier. Well…in a way it was. I was definitely more mindful of my own internal emotions during the day today. But this led to me realize that when I notice the way I am feeling internally, I am almost always judging, wishing it were different. For example, when I notice that I am feeling tense and impatient, I feel badly that I am feeling that way (especially when I am with my children). I feel it is wrong. I SHOULD be able to BE in the moment. Why can’t I just let things fall away and BE here right now.

Hmmm…this exercise is turning out to be far more difficult and interesting than I ever thought it would be.

Mindfully yours on this frigid Thursday (-23 with the windchill where I am).
