As I continue my mindful path, I’ve noticed that when one feels out of sorts it’s a bit of a heightened noticing. So much of being mindful and approaching your life and days with mindfulness is awareness. I’ve become acutely aware of feeling out of sorts.
Another part of mindfulness is accepting our feelings and thoughts without judgment, but simple awareness. This is where the learning process is coming into play for me. I’m still learning how to use mindful awareness to wade myself through these out of sorts periods. I suppose that’s what life is when you try to approach it through mindfulness – a series of lessons until something resembling mastery occurs, if ever.
As uncomfortable as these lessons may be, I think I would take that over having learned it all. For there is always room for improvement and learning is something I usually find enjoyable.
So until this out of sortness passes, I shall stick with the mindful lessons to get me through.
