I've decided to do a slightly different post as I feel everyone needs to take some time for themselves and everyone needs time to see things differently.
We are always having things put under our nose of what others have and what we have and don't have but we all take things like this different, some brush it under the carpet and don't care others get really annoyed that they don't have everything that others do.
But we are all different and equal in some many ways and we mustn't look back or forward we should be in the present moment and take each day as it comes and be thankful for what we have right now.
(everything in this blog post is my own opinion and feel free to take it as you wish. I'm also not a trained yogi or meditation teach so everything is just from my own opinion and from the way I see and Believe......)
Dictionaire definition of mindfulness.....
*The quality or state of being conscious or aware of something.
*A mental state achieved by foucsing one's awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one's feelings, thoughts and bodily sensations, used as a theraputic technique.
what does mindfulness mean to me??
Mindfulness to me is all about staying in the present and focusing on the now rather than the past or the future. And looking at what life brings to you every morning when you wake up instead of wishing for something you don't have or for something you don't want, always be grateful for life and that you have what you have. Happiness in life is the key to everything. Kill everyone with Kindness.
Always have a goal cause then you will always have something to aim for.
I've found this at lot easier with the help of meditation and through watching Rochelle fox and Chris soll on Youtube,Instagram and snapchat.
These two are a massive inspiration in my life and I love there attitude towards life and I can't wait for Rochelles mindspo class it is going to be amazing.
Mindfulness can be hard to master in a short space of time and I have definitely found that but with practise and determination anything is possible even in the hardest times you can pull through.
As some of you may or may not know but I am a christian and so many people take the view that christians shouldn't meditate and that christians shouldn't do yoga and in some ways I completely agree.
I also disagree with this statement as for myself I do practise yoga but I practise yoga as a form of exercise which is good for your health and wellbeing and is especially good for me and my health (i'll explain in a later date) but I don't practise yoga as a belief. I find that when I'm doing yoga or meditation it is probably the most amount of time i'll prayer or speak with God, as I feel most relaxed in myself and also most connected with myself and God as it gives me time to reflect and look back on everything i'm oh so very thankful for.
I know everyone will have there own opinion and I'm completely fine with that I know that there will be people out there who agree with me and others who disagree but thats the same with everything in life.
I hope you guys can find the time to find something you enjoy that gives you time on your own and time away from your devices, that gives you space to think and be in the present moment.
I recommend you try and give yoga and meditation a go, at first you may not feel it is for you try again or find something else like going for a walk ( but leave your phone behind) or read a back outside without your phone or the tv and laptop on. Trust me you'll feel so much better after.
