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.

The oak seed

About five years ago or so, we had to make the difficult decision to take down our beloved, massive oak tree that had graced our backyard for decades. In the summer, its long, arching limbs provided much relief from the sun. We were able to enjoy our deck in the middle of a summer day since this special tree provided a canopy of shade. Our house temperature was cooler due to the relief provided by this towering tree. Unfortunately, it had to come down since   it had lost its structural integrity. I wasn’t home when the tree service arrived. I probably planned it this way since it was heartbreaking to say goodbye to this oak tree that had commanded such a presence in our yard and in our lives.

That next Spring when we began our typical tasks of cleaning up the back yard, we discovered the most pleasant surprise! A tiny tree sprout was popping through the ground. Upon further examination, we realized it was an oak sapling, probably a seed from our tree that had replanted itself!! As these past years have gone by, we have watched this oak tree’s circumference  grow thicker and reach taller as it has  taken a stronger foothold in our backyard. The picture in Mindful Moments was captured this morning as the brilliant sunlight sparkled upon this proud tree. Who knows, it may be possible for it to provide shade and relief from the sun in our lifetime!!
