As I move into this new year, my focus continues to be on truly living ‘in the moment’. Recently, I had a real ‘wake up call’ about being present that will stay with me for a long time…..
My hairdresser gives a tremendous scalp/face massage when she shampoos my hair-it is one of the reasons why I go to her. I went to my hair appointment last week with great anticipation! She lead me to the shampoo chair and within seconds of her starting the scalp massage, my monkey mind took over…….it wasn’t until she was rinsing my hair that I realized I had m-i-s-s-e-d the entire experience…my brain went into over drive and I had deprived myself of this nurturing moment! *Sigh*…..
The bad news is I have to wait five weeks to have another one. The good news? I will have another opportunity and you can bet I will have an entirely different experience!
What about you? What present moments have you missed because of mental preoccupation?
Join me in enjoying the present moment: an important secret to living a fulfilling life!
