Succeed Mindfully

Shadow in the sand

Whether you define success as money, health, relationships and/or just plain happiness, it all begins with being mindful and truly living in the present. When we rush through life, it’s not only your shadow among the shells and sand that you miss, but, you also miss out on the awareness of purpose, and of why your traveling on this path.  Start with where you are.  Learn to be present, meditate, see your truth. Live in this truth of who your are, and begin living mindfully in this moment. Being present is the most important part of living a balanced life, a habit that continues to reward us throughout our life. When we’re present in our jobs, relationships, or in any action, we consiously choose to do better, and we are better, and it’s because of the conscious mindfullness that we begin to have a greater success in our job, in our relationships, and with our health.

Succeed Mindfully – slow down, learn to see, live with awareness, notice, and gratefully experience life right now, right where you are, and then, you will truly know.

Mindfully Ignoring…

“Mindfulness is the energy of being aware and awake to the present moment. It is the continuous practice of touching life deeply in every moment. To be mindful is to be truly alive and at one with those around us. Practicing mindfulness does not require that we go anywhere different.”  –Thich Nhat Hanh

Sometime the energy that it takes for us to be mindful, get’s diverted when the actions of another are hurtful, in the present moment. Our minds begin to wonder to past hurts, and negative thinking.  The trick, I believe, is to learn to ignore a lot more.  May be ignore is the wrong word, may be it is better said; to stay in the present moment, but to choose not to give “it” any energy.  Leave the pettiness of the moment behind you. Don’t waste a minute on “it”. In fact, don’t give “it” another thought.   Stand taller, be a better person, and choose to give your mindful energy to something positive around you.

Just as I’m writing this the door bell rings, the dog starts barking, the kids are talking, music has been turned on, and all of a sudden, there really is just a whole lot going on… when a thought of wanting some quiet time for meditation, reflection, and just a chance to finish this blog post mindfully flash through. So starting over, I reread what I wrote, and see so clearly, that we really don’t have to go anywhere different.  Learning to ignore a lot more, does serve us in many situations. I guess “ignore” was the right word after all.

So I’m mindfully going to finish this blog post, in a happy state of mind.  Celebrating the fact that I’m lucky to be alive, I have time to write, a computer, the internet, and sooooooo much more.

So today and all days, use your energy to celebrating all that is good around you now, and ignore the rest!

Life just got a whole lot better…

Just a thought…
