This particular inspirational quote “life begins each morning” really spoke to me. I rush headlong through the day, with wish lists, to do lists, back of the envelope lists, lists on my phone. Well, the list is endless. Do you know that feeling?

I have to stop and take a breath and just be in the moment, noticing my breath, my feet on the floor, my body in the chair and by breathing in and out intentionally I can begin to notice that all life is here in this moment. I can just be instead of constantly doing.

Do you do any meditation, or breathing exercises to help you through the day? I did an eight week mindfulness course a while back, and it really helped me with being present, not thinking about what I needed to do next, or what was on my to do list, or the laundry, the dishwasher – you know all that stuff that we fill our time and thoughts with – that really unimportant stuff, who cares if the tasks take second place. No one wins awards for the smartest washing line, or best stacked dishwasher. Boy when I say that, it makes all those chores seem so unimportant and menial. They scream ‘get a life’.

Maybe this little reminder on a beautiful English bone china mug might just stop you in your tracks for 5 minutes, enough time to just be and really enjoy your cup of tea (or coffee).
