Mindfulness and Paying Attention
Tuesday, August 06, 2013
Today my adult son from Texas comes home for a week. All right, it really isn't HIS home any longer, but... I am beyond excited to see him since it has been since Christmas. Since he has sort of a routine to visit all his favorite food places to visit while he is here, it sort of presents a problem. He is not expecting me to spend time making elaborate meals, that's good. He is expecting us to join him at his favorite places, that's bad. I have a plan, which 6 months ago I would not have even bothered thinking up one! I have asked him to give me warning the night before where we are going the next night. I will decide ahead of time what I will order, I will eat lighter the rest of the day, and I will NOT miss one day of exercise! I will pay attention to myself, in addition to someone else!
I will be mindful of all aspects of my life.
I will be paying attention every day. I've got this!
