Mindfulness is only a breath away. Thanks to a friend on fb for letting me remember that today :) As soon as you can connect with your breath again, mindfulness is there.
"Breathing in, I know I am breathing in.
Breathing out, I know I am breathing out.
Breathing in, I connect to the present moment.
Breathing out, I know this is a wonderful moment."
Or as Tara Brach says (new bf for York MBSR) - 'if you lived in your heart, you'd be home right now'.
I feel very lucky to have so many reminders to be mindful, so many reasons to be happy, so much to be thankful for.
