Mindfulness is key in your ability to act with intention. The practice prepares you to forgo past resentment, let go of future anxieties and accept your thoughts, feelings and sensations as they are in the present moment. Learning to live with more awareness and acceptance will endow you with the ability to act deliberately, discerningly and compassionately. No matter what the circumstance, whether it be challenging, joyful or simply mundane, the choice to walk on a path of mindfulness is 100% yours.
Just for today, take a moment to reflect on the following questions:
☐ What holds you back from being your best self?
☐ What habits get in the way of self-acceptance?
☐ What deliberate choices can you make to be kinder, more honest, and more compassionate?
