Mindfulness On My Mind

Lessons learned at a weekend wellness retreat in Mineral Wells, Texas

I sat in the therapist’s office, sobbing – huge tears spilled over like a cup overfilled with emotion.  And overfilled I was, yet I had no idea “what” I was actually feeling.

“Why are you crying,” the therapist asked.

“I don’t know,” I replied.

The therapist had told me that I stuffed my emotions, and this outburst was a key turning point in my awareness of it. Since then, mindfulness has been on my mind. As the creator and publisher of Evolving Magazine for over 20 years, you’d think I’d have the whole mindfulness concept figured out. I’ve had partners comment that I’m incredibly self-aware. So when did this disconnect occur?

I began to practice conscious mindfulness: What I eat and drink, how I move, and what I feel.
