March Musings 7: Mindful Practice


While reflecting on life, I think back on this winter day at the marsh. I realize that sometimes worries overshadow  joys if we allow them to do so. 

I created a hack to stop worries from overflowing.

Life Practic:
Take a morning walk. Suspend worries for a short time by pausing and looking beyond the horizon or listening to nature's sounds. Be still. Enjoy the setting. Find peace.

Reflection:
When I captured this photo at the marsh, I realized that within the quiet I could hear more deeply and see more clearly. 

Peacefulness can surround us if we are present in the moment. 

Goal:
It is with this in mind that I will continue to seek the joys of life by noticing and wondering more deeply and savoring the small moments.

Inspirational Quote:
When we are present in each moment, the past gently rolls up behind us and the future slowly unravels before us. -Rev. Richard Levy

May your day be filled with the wonders of late winter.
