I’ve been talking non-stop about 2015 as the year of living mindfully. And I meant it.
But on Tuesday I left Rikers and got on the bus to start my trek back and realized that I had left my wallet inside the prison.
This required me to get off the bus, hop on another and go back.
Had I been truly present, I would have done a quick scan to ensure I was leaving with everything I brought in.
I was initially frustrated but let this feeling turn into understanding.
This has led me to shake up my traditional Saturday routine. I’m going switch up my normal class and do home practice at a different time.
Everything can be a lesson. I can’t just talk about being mindful, I must be mindful.
