Mindful Monday #12 – Seize the Day

Today’s Mindful Monday topic popped up Wednesday night while I talked to a girl friend.  I continued to think about the topic for the duration of the week.  It wasn’t until Sunday, that it became very clear that the topic of time really needs to be addressed since it came up organically several times this…

I’m Sorry

I want to take a moment to apologize.  In response to last week’s theme of letting go, this week I want to talk about the power of I’m Sorry.   Since I was a girl I was raised to apologize for my mistakes.  Apologies are hard because of the feeling of shame that washes over you. …

Mindful Monday #11 – Apologize

I’ve been thinking about apologies a lot lately.  And have three recent stories from my life that have kept this thought so fresh in my mind.  One of my girlfriends felt she had changed several relationships in her life over the course of one action.  Seeing her relationships shift, she felt she needed to address…

How to Let Go

We are in a world hurt.  My eyes have always been wide open.  I paid attention to everything as a little girl. One thing I noticed is how many people were unhappy or discontent.  In the idle moments, when people don’t think they are being watched, you can really see someone’s pain or unhappiness.  Everybody…

Mindful Monday #10 – Letting go

  The time is coming for me to dive back into writing the third act of my solo piece (The Unimaginable).  I have it all figured out.  I will spend my up coming hiatus diving into my past and writing about one of the hardest moments of my life.  What I have learned in this…

Leap of Faith – Update

Last week on Mindful Monday #8 I wrote about the Leap of Faith that is calling my name. For sometime I have played with the idea of ANOTHER redirection and my reaction has been in a stale mate.  I mentioned that my old way of being is pushing up against my new way of being…

Mindful Monday #9 – Right on Time

I haven’t been meditating as much as I meditated last year or as much as I intended to meditate this year or really at all.  I feel the difference.  However, in my practice of being present and in the moment, I have discovered that the answers to questions that I have come to me as…

Lessons from Listening

I talked vaguely to a co-worker about my blog in the presence of my supervisor.  Out of the blue, my supervisor asked about my blog.  I told her that I have been writing for a few months now.  She continued to ask questions of interest and finally asked if she could read it.  I thought…
