Leap of faith

Am I on?

Here goes...earlier this week I signed up to desperately looking for some inspiration about leading a better life.  I was tired of the daily grind and wanted to find some joy in life.  There has to be some hasn't there?  Anyway, one thought I've had recently was about starting a mindful/well being blog.  "No-ones gonna read it!"  I thought, so what is the point in writing it!  But the thing is, I've lots I'd like to share with you if you are interested?  We could all do with enjoying life a little more, being calmer and more content.  I'm mad about mindfulness....hence the name.  It's all about connecting with the here and now.  Taking time to press the pause button in our day and watch that washing blowing in the wind or savour that latte that you don't normally even taste.  It's about being kind and accepting ourselves and learning more about what makes us tick.  I've really only just started this journey (can you say the "J" word on your first blog....ah well, too late now) and I'm hoping it will prove an interesting ride! 

In the meantime, it's my first retreat tomorrow (2 days of peace/quiet/meditation/tranquility/no TV/no wine (or maybe just a little), only minimal chatting and lots of looking at what's going on in my head)

Help!  I'm scared!

Wish me luck and I will let you know how I get on next week.

That's if anyone's there.........

Press that pause button just once over the weekend.

Take care
