It creeps up on you, like a cold breeze in the middle of summer. While you’re reading a book, something you do for yourself. Or eating a meal, there’s no shame in eating alone. You might be watching an episode of the show you’ve been working on all week, excited to get a weekend night in alone. Curled up in a bed holding your dog, watching her chest rise and fall. As you sip on your daily cup of coffee, a ritual you savour . You feel confident in your choices, secure in the life you’ve made and almost happy that you have this luxury. You sit and take pleasure in watching the most mundane moments, aware of how this might contribute to your idea of mindfulness and appreciation of the little things.
