Today we met up with Mum’s sister Sally. We had a lovely time. Noah and I sat drawing and Sally and Mum were deep in conversation about dress making.
Sally was explaining what she was learning about dress making on her college course. They got to the stage where they needed to borrow a pen and paper so that the explanation could go further! They were both engrossed!
It struck me that their common interest really kept them in the moment. For a time they were both deeply focussed on their conversation, to the point where nothing else crept into their awareness! Totally Mindful.
Mindfulness really can be all around us. Every day there is the opportunity to take your practise into another area of your life. Give it a try and see how focussed on conversation you can be when you are with someone you really connect with. Just the break from everyday life will do you good.
