#23 – A beautiful person gave me permission to accept help without feeling guilty and to take extra-special care of myself because I am “going through a healing period” which I need not minimize. A weight lifted from me in that moment.
#24 – I think that I finally get what “mindfulness” means versus distraction. Here’s a fun fact:
“Mindfulness practice leads to increases in regional brain gray matter density…in brain regions involved in learning and memory processes, emotion regulation, self-referential processing, and perspective taking.” ~Psychiatry Res. 2011 Jan 30;191(1):36-43. Epub 2010 Nov 10
Now, to practice it…
What moment are you grateful for today? I had three wonderful “in the moment” moments today – the above two and a third which I posted here.
