I’m now a mother of a preppy. What does this mean? New challengers, allowing my little man to grow and learn in a formal setting, allowing others to lead in the teachings and building blocks of life and of course getting it together to get to school on time, becoming organised!
My life is mostly a mindful mediation. This is how I have chosen to live. Each activity has intent, is given time to unfold, manifest as needed and clarity of each task is performed in a mindful and slow rhythmic forward motion. Then a Curve ball from left field, you need to be at school on time. It has taken me a couple of weeks but I needed to gear up my rhythm of life and meet a new quota of organisation to achieve my goals of a mindfully meditative lifestyle.
Goals set to achieve have include: prepping school uniform, bags packed, pre-made kinder lunches (I purposefully choose a school that provides all meals which are mindfully eaten together as an entire school unit…great choice by the way), setting a consist rhythm and rules for the morning: no playing till you have eaten, washed, brushed your teeth and hair, put your plate in the dishwasher, pi’s in the laundry and made your bed. Each task is performed in the same order to set a rhythm and each morning the rhythm has picked up pace slowly so less emphasis is put on the ‘must do’s’ of life and more time can be spent of the pleasures of play.
Allowing the mind and body a Rhythm and routine of movement though morning preparation sets an easy tone for the day. Focus, preparation and rhythm are key steps towards freedom. The freedom of body is achieved for the body as it is a warm up to your day with familiar movements (I like to do a yogi salut to the sun each morning) and the freedom of mind is achieved as these tasks become a routine rhythmic morning meditation, taking out aspects of annoyance to complete a task, over thinking on what to do next or grunting out a task to be completed before leaving the house.
A mindful organised morning rhythm free’s the mind and body to approach the welcoming of the coming day with focus and clarity.
