MINDFULNESS

Below follow some quotes from people I admire. I have put them among photos of our garden showing how lush it is at this moment, a moment to relish and savour, a moment to be thankful for and to enjoy to the full. Yes another summer is in full swing ~~~~~~~~

  2. This is lovely, Thankyou. My mindfulness moments usually come when I’m wondering through my garden or allotment and observing nature. Or even when I’m working, but just enjoying the moment. A garden is so good for the soul.

  3. I really enjoyed the combination of mindful quotes and beautiful images in this post. Thanks for sharing. It transported me nicely to a more relaxed place. I have a poetry blog here on WordPress and today’s poem is about watching emotions as they pass by in case you have time to read? Wishing you a good day, Sam 🙂
