A Blog Post by Judy Thompson, Director Mind-Body Services:
An invitation to yourself to return to mindfulness:
Dear Beloved Self:
I know we sometimes have our difficulties with each other. From the moment I awaken, from a usually not so restful sleep, I try to prepare for the day ahead, either work, school, family or in the rare moment, a day for self. Responsibilities, errands, family issues, worries, fears and life, creep back into my mind. I forget to take time for myself and I dive, instantly, back into the structures, ideas, and identities that mask me.
Today, I will offer myself a moment of remembrance, a moment to return to myself, to return to my sense of grounding and calmness that is inherently within me, maybe deep within me, but there nonetheless.
Today, I return to mindfulness, being aware of the present moment and not losing myself in past fears or future worries.
Today, I practice mindfulness of breath. I can do this practice wherever I am, I only need my willingness to participate, and I only need 6 minutes.
Thank you for guiding me back to myself,
Signed (My True Nature)
