Before I opened my eyes I heard the rain. More specifically, I heard traffic outside of my window driving on wet streets. Something about that sound made me pay attention. As I stretched and yawned I tuned in again and again to that sound of tires on pavement. Today I use that sound as my mantra. When my mind wanders, I’ll come back to that sound so I remain present and aware.
2015. The year of living mindfully.
