Good morning, all – and a very happy Monday Mindfulness to everyone as well. Thanks so much for pausing here with me this morning for a fresh thought of the moment.
Perhaps you, like me, sometimes look at what is currently happening around the world and wonder the likes of: ‘Am I doing enough?’ ‘Am I contributing meaningfully enough?’ ‘Am I helping others enough?’ Let this quote from Teddy Roosevelt, 26th President of the United States, be a gentle reminder to us all then – that whatever we’re doing to look after ourselves and others throughout these strange times is enough.
Took only what you really needed from the store during your weekly shop? Reached out to someone you haven’t spoken to in some time, even if you only chatted for a handful of minutes? Snapped a picture of a beautiful field of flowers spotted during your walk-a-day, then shared it to lift spirits elsewhere? Or perhaps you decided just to do a bit of doodling today, simply because it’s a tool in your mental health first aid kit? Whatever you’re doing to share a bit of loving-kindness with yourself and others, it is valuable and positively impactful, whether you realize it fully or not.
