When we begin anything new we usually have the tendency to jump in head first and try and do as much as possible, wanting to see results straight away. Unfortunately, mindfulness is a process that takes time and has no quick fix or short cuts. We get the best results with mindfulness when we are mindful. Attention and experience are the only ways forward; being in a mindful state is a liberating experience and worth the time spent practising all aspects of it.
What we gain.
Opens us to new experiences
Helps us accept
Helps let go
Mindfulness has the ability – if given the opportunity – to give us a life under our terms and a life of choice.
Rome wasn’t built in a day, and anything that’s worth doing is worth doing correctly: we only cheat ourselves by not doing so.
