First I would just like to say a very heartfelt 'Thank you' for the lovely comments about the loss of our beautiful springer spaniel Stella a few days before Christmas...you are all so kind and thoughtful.
I have noticed that a lot of bloggers are choosing a word for 2016 and I have thought very hard about what mine would be...
And have decided that it has to be
and to practice Mindfulness.
I am fully aware of all the definitions of Mindfulness and have to say I have been practicing, although not always successfully for the last year...but I have noticed a change in myself...more calm, more aware of the moment and I take time to think a little more before reacting or saying something...which is a start I suppose....
Also I have a colleague at work who has been studying a Mindfulness course and as part of her study has taught me about Mindfulness using relaxation and meditation which I have to say has helped immensely with my Fibromyalgia and of course my neck and shoulder problems....
is my word this year.
Thank you for taking the time to stop by.
I really do appreciate your visits and lovely, encouraging comments.
