Making time for gratitude

At the beginning of the year I set a goal of finding three things a day for which I felt grateful. This is all part of a bigger life shift towards mindfulness.

I can’t lie, with a new job and the huge amount of travel and general brain space that it has entailed, daily mindfulness has gone out the window over the last few months. At exactly the moment when it is needed most.

This is the challenge of setting an annual goal for yourself; life has a habit of getting in the way.

I’m trying to not see this hiccup as a set-back and I’m working very hard not to let guilt overwhelm me. It can’t be helped and realising that some times things have to slip is good for me. Another side of the mindfulness coin, perhaps?

I’m determined to get back into the swing of things as soon as possible because I still believe in the goal. Fingers crossed.
