I notice the change, I see some small pieces inside me shifting here and there (all for good). There’s some ease to my approach towards things, my thoughts are still vivid and widespread, they still keep poking their nose in between my mindfulness but now I feel some power and control over them, I can let go.
I have some clarity and acceptance towards the surprises life pitches on our face. I understand that what matters is the present, each and every second is counting and I don’t want to lose it. I am not allowing either the past or the future to take over the present. The present is already short-lived and it should be valued the most.
I am being more clear and straightforward with people. I was always clear and straight about things I need and what I don’t but either it was too blatant or I was backing up things with reasons and justifications; making excuses. Now I am simply honest and keeping myself ready about whatever response I might receive. And this is making everything much simpler. Understanding others perspective and then working ahead accordingly is soothing.
There’s so much more to life rather than just confining ourselves to our restricted mindset and as a result, missing out on the openness the universe has offered us to breathe.
These tiny things give me immense joy. Much gratitude to my friend Medha Mishra and my mentor for opening up this opportunity for me.
