Mindful Living Monday (#mlmon): 30 April 2012

If this is the first time you've heard of Mindful Living Monday, you'll want to visit the #mlmon page on Mindful Living Guide. The page includes: 1) a brief introduction to the Mindful Living Monday online community, 2) two super-easy (email address only) subscription forms so that you're automatically kept abreast of all things #mlmon, and 3) information on how to get the embed code for the new #mlmon badge for your own blog or website.


Today's #mlmon tip ...

Today's Mindful Living Monday tip is one you might like to do on a regular basis, or whenever you find yourself in a bit of a difficult, self-pitying or fallow rut.

Simply put pen to paper for 10 minutes or more, and write in response to those aspects of your life for which you're grateful. You might begin with those things which exist in your present moment, or perhaps start off writing of those people, places and other loves from your childhood which have enriched your life.

As with any writing prompt, not knowing where to begin is a wonderful place to begin. I find it helpful to begin by writing out the question itself, sometimes more than once, until the first inklings of a response begin to flow through me and onto the page. In this case the question is, What am I grateful for?
