Knowing When

94431774_sPart of Mindfulness is being aware. Knowing when to let go of the things that no longer serve you. This has always been a difficult task for me. I tend to hang on. But in some things I also can tend to not be so great at following through.

As I explained a few posts ago , I’ve been writing in this journal, The Mindful Life Journal, to be specific for about 50 days now. Every day, twice a day, answering the same questions. I was getting bored. So I supplemented with the more expansive and deeper The Mindfulness Journal. 

Today, this morning precisely, I came to the conclusion that I had done the exercise off the Mindful Life Journal so many times that I was already thinking it as soon as I woke up. It had become just a part of my routine. I didn’t need to write it in that journal to be aware of it, accept it and carry it with me through my day. So today, I decided to say “when” on the Mindful Life Journal.

If I find myself slipping from thoughfully going through the mindful awareness the prompts provide, I will always have it here to return to. But for now, I’ve outgrown it. Which is a pretty great milestone, in my opinion.

I still believe it is the perfect starter for anyone just beginning mindfulness journaling and highly recommend it. At least until you grow out of it too.
