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.

Reflections while on vacation

Do you fantasize about when your next vacation will arrive? Perhaps you have done all the research to find the perfect rental, the perfect sight -seeing agenda, the perfect restaurants etc. etc. All of this planning is done by the thinking mind, right? 

Then it is time to board the plane or get in the car and start your adventure! I wonder how many of us realize the perfect vacation? I dare say, probably none of us.  There may be perfect moments but in the grand scheme of things, like life itself, there will be moments of too much sun, not enough sun, too cold, too hot, too buggy. You get the drift…

So here I am writing from Jekyll Island. I took a plane to get here. Of course I did all the planning for my perfect adventure. Has it been perfect? Not at all. Have I had moments of sheer wonder, absolutely!! I have relearned how it is important to let go of how I thought it would be and be present for what it is…

So for today, I will open to the natural world around me. We are biking to Zachary’s Riverhouse restaurant for lunch. The bike paths on the island are glorious. Large live oak trees with moss dripping off their branches canopy the north side paths. The Jekyll River is off to the  right and sightings of osprey and other shore birds are a common site. My intention is to be present for  each moment instead of getting ahead of myself for the rest of the moments to live today. It will be good practice for how I want to live my life in general.
