Mindfulness and the task of cutting my lawn!
So this blog isn’t the third update on my trip. I promise to write the next installment soon. What felt more pertinent today was sharing how my senses savored the morning chore of moving our lawn. As I rounded each corner of our property, I enjoyed the brilliant colors of stark white and bright pink azaleas as these petals opened fully into the sun. The soft blanket of greenery under my feet felt like I was walking on clouds. Birds serenaded me as they found perfect perches in our willowy birch tree. Life was blooming all around me. I too, felt alive. With engaging my senses, I felt so present, so at one with the vivid natural world around me. Can you imagine moving through your days with such presence? May you purposefully experiment with capturing the present moment and letting your senses digest the wonder of what is around you.
