mindfulness is checking in

mindfulness is like checking in to the present moment.

it’s like saying, “hello. i’ve arrived. what’s going on around here?”

it is getting curious, and noticing, without judgement, what is happening in and around ourselves in that moment.

so — practice dropping in and saying hello. pausing to appreciate the sights, smells, feelings, thoughts and other elements of a moment sometime.

it is bringing that conscious awareness to what already is, that is mindfulness.
