Mindfully Living In The Present

Living Mindfully – GoldilocksBlog.com

Mindfulness helps you go home to the present. And every time you go there and recognize a condition of happiness that you have, happiness comes. – Thich Nhat Hanh 

When you mindfully move through out your day, you live with awareness. Aware of how you move and breathe. Aware, as if it’s your first day on earth. Become in awe of how it feels to walk, to wash your hands, to smile, to laugh. Amazed at the brilliant blue sky, the flowering weed, the trees, the cars, the sounds. Everything is brilliant! And every time you can bring yourself to this place of awareness. You realize how easy it is to recognize happiness in what you use to believe to be the ordinary.  There is no drama playing in your head, because your busy looking at the present, consistently, with new awareness.

Living in the past or present robs us of our time. We should bless the past with faith that the past is success, somehow working for our favor, with lessons and growth.

Then forget about it – It can not be changed.

Bless the future with a knowing that the world is somehow conspiring for your benefit – Believe.

Then forget about it.

Let it all go! Live in the flow and fully in the now, and get ready – expect to receive. Now is the accepted time, Now is the time to act in the present. Here is where you find happiness. Here is where you find peace.

So,…just a thought… maybe every time you wash your hands, let it be a reminder to come into the present. Notice the action of turning the water on and putting soap into your hand. Feel the water whether it’s warm or cold. Feel your hands rubbing together as the soap bubbles become larger and larger, allowing the velvety softness to caresses your hands. Feel it, and embrace it, from every perspective.  Allow yourself to mindfully begin living in the present.

Box of Love

There’s a lot of Love in that box. It’s filled with cookies, and cards, hot chocolate, a movie,personal notes, bath salts for mom, itunes cards for the children, and special nuts for the man of the house. The box is overflowing, not just with gifts, but with love. You can feel the love pouring out of it. You can feel the presence of the sender. It’s not the gifts, it the whole.
That’s the intention we should put into everything we do – Love. You can feel, see, and hear the difference between a blank hug, gift, or word, and those filled with Love. You feel it in places too; in your home, business, and even in your being. Be mindful of what energy you carry, and bring with you, wherever you go. Bring love, happiness, and joy. Do everything with love.
Just a thought…

Walking Your Path

Walk your path, not somebody elses. Choose your path and don’t compare it to another persons. Don’t get caught up in what someone else is doing. Their’s a reason your headed in your direction. You may not understand why, but it will work out for your best interest, if you let it. Why worry, anyway, about what path someone else is on. If you were suppose to be on that path, you would be on it. Their is a reason that your on the path that your on, so forget what everyone else is doing, and focus on what your doing. Just because the sun is not shining now, doesn’t mean it won’t be later.

We want control and for people to believe, feel, and behave, exactly in a way that we want, an exactly how we want. And, in regards to ourselves, we want exactly the same really, for everything to happen when an how we want. When  deep down we know that the reality is that people are going to react, judge, and place us exactly where they want in their own lives, whether it’s what we feel is in their best interest or not.  We don’t understand, it doesn’t feel right, as to why they are making these decisions, when really, who are we to say.  Letting go with faith in a higher power, that if we continue on our journey that we might be placed in something far greater than expected.

We stepped into our paths, most likely, because we were being called to it in some way. So keep stepping in that direction, and don’t worry about the reactions and decisions of others. Keep walking, keep moving on your path. It doesn’t matter if your solo, following someone, or if someone is following you. If you feel right on this path – keep going. Focus only on you. Control your mind if you want to control something, by redirecting your thoughts to positive ones.

We are all different, embrace your uniqueness and live your own life, and let others live theirs.
