Over the years, I have been a strong proponent of journaling, of taking time to evaluate the personal, inner landscape to notice and resolve conflict, emotional blocks, leftovers. When this long pause is needed – go for it! Today I’d like to suggest adding a practice of real-time awareness. How present are you in your day-to-day, moment-by-moment experience? If, for example, you often find yourself:
- saying yes when you mean no
- making commitments you later wish you hadn’t
- bored or with mind wandering
- desperately needing that journaling time to come back to yourself
maybe it’s time to “return to this moment” and “this one” and “this one” and live it fully.
What are you aware of now?
