Where is your mind right now? Without judging the findings, chances are you may have been thinking about something in the future or trying to resolve something from the past. 

We are hard-wired to scan for problems and threats. Research shows that we spend about 50% of our waking hours in this state of mind called the default mode network. 

There is another way though and that is with mindfulness; being present to more moments of your day without judgmentas you live them. Is this a day that you can tip the scales and be present more than 50% of the time to what is happening, as it is happening?? You may be surprised with how wonderful it feels to live more of your moments fully.

Life isn’t for the faint of heart!

 

Yesterday, my husband and 12 year old nephew went to see a matinee movie called, A Dog’s Purpose”. From what I read about it, it seemed like it would be just the kind of “cute” movie we were all in the mood for. Boy, we were wrong about that. For animal lovers, this movie was crushing. What amazed me though, was all three of us could have our tears as the story plot unfolded. We each could honor the pain that got evoked inside of us from our past memories of our departed pets. 

After the last credit rolled, we gathered our tissues and slowly made our way back into the “real world”. On our drive home, tears continued as did conversations about the strength it takes to allow the tears to move through our bodies. This is Mindful Self-Compassion in practice! I am so delighted that our almost teenage nephew can soften into his heart and realize the benefit of honoring the emotions that arise inside. Even though the outcome of going to the movie was vastly different than we imagined, it was one of those tender and profound experiences that bonded us closer together. Priceless indeed!
