Three gratitudes today

1. a good nap

2. a healthy dinner

3. having art money to buy books

I had to take Max today to a doctor’s appointment. I had Fly Boys with me. I read slowly. Sometimes I rush as I read, but I was determined to read with deliberate attention. I am not sure why I feel an urgency when I get a book. It’s exciting to start a new book, but I need to slow down, savor what I read. Today I did. It was lovely. Paying attention makes all the difference.

A walk taken with mindfulness is so different from a walk that is rushed. Doing yoga focusing on my body and breathe rather than the time changes every thing. Today I was mindful of mindfulness. 🙂
