Like this morning. I did my walk up my nearby hill and I was about half-way through when I realised that I had been totally submerged in a long 'to do' list. I was making all these plans for how I would spend my day and what I would get done. Because I had been away for a couple of days, I was keen to 'catch up' with all the tasks I had left behind. But the point of mindfulness is not to admonish the failure, but to notice the thinking mind – and begin again. So I did.
So in answering my initial question, I feel that while I am far from perfect (and maybe never will be), I am content to know that I am getting better, learning and growing.
Remember that whatever you focus on grows. Hope you are having a wonderful start to your week!
