Going thru recovery I have been trying to practice mindfulness. I’m very new at it but can see the benefits it can provide to those of us going through recovery as one of our tools. It’s benefit and my lack of practicing it was apparent to me the other day when my 3 yr old grandson and I were watching a commercial about Mary poppins. He noticed things during the commercial that I didn’t see or notice or just plain took advantage of being there. It became clear to me that I’m missing out on a lot going on around me by not paying attention and being mindful. Things I may never get back again, things that could be important to me and my recovery. I will continue to improve my practice and hope I get better to insure my progress on this path.
