Mental Health Monday

In DBT we are learning about mindfulness. About being mindful and present in the moment for the things we do. Using our senses to be mindful of what's around us, and becoming aware of our thoughts. I go parts of the days just in a blur hardly noticing anything going on around me. Never noticing the little detail, the special things and moments in life. I am really hoping that through this teaching on mindfulness I can become more aware, more aware of what's going on around me, more aware of my thoughts and feelings. This is not something that comes naturally for me so it is something I am having to take time for and remind myself of every day. I am challenging myself to live everyday being mindful. Why not challenge yourselves to spend your days being mindful as well. We can remind each other, and do it together.

Indeed we can. As a writer I try to 'watch' when I'm out and about, but I don't go out often. Once a week to the cinema/food perhaps. Unless I'm visiting UK and then we are out in public a lot. EXHAUSTING!!

I remind myself often how lucky we are, I am now. I really haven't always been, so now is good. Even if its crap, its still better than many and better than I've ever been .I am mindful of that. IT keeps me 'sane'. Thanks for participating in Monday Madness and for reminding us of this . XX
