“The invariable mark of wisdom is to see the miraculous in the common.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Many people are mindlessly walking through life, working from limiting thoughts, living in the past or in the future — but not in the present. One surefire way to step into the present moment is to practice mindfulness. In her book Mindfulness, renowned psychologist Ellen Langer writes: “Regardless of how we get there, either through meditation or more directly by paying attention to novelty and questioning assumptions, to be mindful is to be in the present, noticing all the wonders that we didn’t realize were right in front of us.”
Do you succumb to the tedium of life OR find the extraordinary in the ordinary?
