Thinking About the Future

Thinking About the Future

Last time I touched on how mindfulness can help us live a full like by staying in the moment. This means not worrying about the past and what should have been and also not worrying about the future and what should be done. This doesn’t mean however that we can’t think about the future and our possibilities.

In some ways, thinking about the future is a good thing! It can help us direct where we want to go and who we want to become. This video really gets to the point, I hope you enjoy!

For some, including myself, it wasn’t something I ever even considered until the idea was introduced to me. How strange that something so simple was such a novel idea to me.

Meaningful Relationships & Invisible Walls

Last time I talked about my gratitude journal, and I really did end up taking my own advice and setting an alarm to write in my journal. I hate to be a slave to my technology, but the calendar reminders are one thing I really do find useful. And, guess what I remembered to do at 9am this morning? You guessed it! Add a post to my journal.

Anyway, before I dive into my post I have to give a quick shout out to all our moms. Fitting since many of us celebrated mother’s day last weekend. My mom recently gave me a birthday card that I will cherish forever. In it she talked about a couple of my character traits and for the first time I could see clearly that she really knew who I was and could see ME for who I was. What a gift this was to me!

Welcome…

Today marks the day I finally committed to starting this blog. Thank you for joining me! Oh, and by the way, if you didn’t know, my name is Bella.

I know, I know, I get a lot of comments about vampires…falling in love with vampires….being a vampire…but you know I was Bella before the books or the movies. I might be pale, but I’m no vampire.

I also promise NEVER to talk about vampire things. In fact this will be the only post EVER that mentions it.

So check back when I get some fabulous content up soon!
