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 IS MESSY!!

As I drove around my neighborhood this morning, I witnessed Mother Nature’s full display of “Life is Messy”. Although the road surfaces were simply wet, the sides of the road were filled with heavy wet snow mixed together with brown leaves. I had to chuckle in realizing that even the changing seasons aren’t perfectly timed. Our street had been lined with pile upon pile of leaves waiting to be collected by our town highway department. The early storm that blew through here on Thursday really curtailed that plan. 

I guess the question is can we roll with the unexpected both around us and within us? Flexibility is key, don’t you think? I will be learning this lesson until I take my last breath. I come from a family of routines, plans, organization and seemingly “being in control” at all times!. As I became an adult decades ago, I could see behind this facade of thinking this kind of structure could keep bad things from happening. No amount of routine could keep family members from getting sick and passing away. No amount of structure could prevent other members falling into the grips of addiction. Truth be told, this morning scene is probably the greater teacher than all the teachings I received as a child. Its message is to expect the unexpected, learn to live with things in disarray and know that life goes on.
