This weekend in addition to my painting, I tried being mindful in other ways.
We went out to lunch yesterday and I caught myself in the moment, being in the moment and allowing myself to stay present with my food. Okay, with the chips and salsa, and some with my entree also. We went out for Mexican somewhere we’ve never gone before. They obviously make their own salsa there and it was tasty. With every bite, I stopped and paused, I was trying to figure out what was in it. It didn’t dawn on me for another 5 minutes that I was actually being mindful when I do this. I mean as an obvious lover of food, figuring out what is in food… is second nature. It was a surprising moment in my day catching myself being mindful
I also spent a few more countless hours painting this weekend, and writing.
Mindful eating is hard for me to do… and It’s something I need to prioritize more over the next few weeks… and years of my life.
This post was short, only because the last one was a bit long and I wanted to include this. Thank you for reading.
