This evening I decided to take the children to the park. We don’t have one in our village so we walked across the fields to the closest one.
The children loved it. We set off in brilliant sunshine. And then the clouds rolled in!!
It really did feel like a weather lottery. There was still plenty of sunshine but the loom of the dark clouds was there.
Rather than making me worry it made me enjoy every single moment of sunshine that we got. Because I knew it might not last it made it even more special.
Sometimes the threat of loosing something can make us enjoy it even more.
Mindfulness is a great way to learn to enjoy everything more in the moment. Even something as simple as the weather.
