In the fifth episode of the Mindful Notes podcast I am sharing a voice note (to self) where I reflect on what periods of forgetfulness may mean and one way to tackle it to make memories you want to look back on.
In the third episode of the Mindful Notes podcast I am sharing a voice note (to self) where I am thinking through what true success looks like. I dive into the tug of war between freedom of time and monetary wealth and how I prioritize the work I do to achieve my view of “success.”
Have you ever heard someone say "plants make people happy"? I had never thought over why that may be before until now. Today I share two reasons why I think this saying is true. I will share with you a random shower thought inspired by my pepperomia plant, that led to reflections on self care and self growth.
Also, listening note, there are a lot of popping ps in this episode, I recommend lowering the volume if you are festive to such sounds! Sorry about that in advance.
You may have heard of intentional living, but have you ever asked what that really means? And what does it mean about how we live day to day? In today’s episode I reflect on my definition of an intentional life.
In 2017 I did a project that I called 100 Days of Mindfulness. It was inspired by the #100DaysProject and it changed my life. Yes, I know how dramatic that sounds, but if you know me you know I am not a dramatic person... so I repeat, my 100 days of mindfulness changed my life. I challenge myself to start meditating consistently and to develop daily mindful practices. I shared this challenge on Instagram, and that public announcement really made me accountable to this effort. I read about mindfulness, intentional living, and meditation. And I began surrounding myself with people who could teach me more. My life blossomed and I felt myself appreciating new things in my life and creating space to enjoy those things more.
In 2018 I did another 100 days mindfulness and along the way I recorded a few mindful notes to myself. These notes we a chance for me to take note of my observations and reflections on the life I am designing for myself. I’ve decided to share these with the world on the off chance that one of these notes proves meaningful to someone other than me.
Here goes, season one of Mindful Notes!
Each year I challenge myself to #100DaysOfMindfulness, a project to grow my mindfulness practice and build healthier habits to carry me throughout my life. You can join in on the 100 days too and receive a daily quote about mindful living by signing up below.
