Just shy of two hours, I felt only content and grateful, which brought a smile to the edges of my mouth. Mindfulness helped me recognize it and then enjoy.
Most often, negative talk in my head creeps through the well-established ruts, dangling “You know this won’t last. Where is that other shoe? Around any corner? It will drop, believe you me.”
Today, I successfully brushed the fear and expectations aside, like those leaves on a beautiful stream in my mind when I attempt to breathe and hush the noise. It felt amazing. Experiencing the gentle peace rests with me for a while.
