Enjoying a Life More Present...

My quest for a more mindful existence is one I embarked upon roughly six years ago...  Am I there yet?  Um, no, I'm not--at least, not fully.

And, you know, I've began to wonder if such a thing as being fully mindful--one hundred percent of the time--is even possible.  After all, humans' minds wander.  To some extent, that's what they were meant to do, right?

That's okay, though. The efforts I've taken these past few years have made me much more mindful and present than I've ever been in my life.  That, I adore! Sipping my morning java and truly savoring its taste, stopping at a traffic light and soaking in the gorgeous skies before me, carefully choosing my response (versus responsively reacting) when asked that "interesting" question... Yes, it's all good stuff...
