The alarm goes off and it’s time to wake. I am often times exhausted from my mind racing in the wee hours of the morning, but I know that it is in this moment I must make a crucial decision.
Mindfulness or Mindlessness? I must choose. But I must choose wisely, for while one can bring peace and tranquility, the other will take it from me.
In choosing Mindfulness, my day starts out something like this…
It’s 5am and I head downstairs for a cup of peppermint tea.
I am dressed in comfy clothes and after a brisk half hour walk, I return to do thirty minutes of Yoga to relax my body and mind.
An hour of chanting follows, with my focus and intent set upon devotion to the divine.
By 7am I am ready for the day and have not once yet “connected” the cyberspace continuum.
My mindfulness practice sets the tone for my day. Afterwards, I am energized, happy, and at peace.
My creative channels are open and receiving like little lightning rods of love. I can tackle anything thrown at me.
I feel amazing and grounded and connected all at the same time. It is what they mean by living in the moment and being one with my nature. It is nothing short of divine BLISS.
In choosing Mindlessness, my day starts out like this…
The alarm goes of at 5am and I shut it. I wake up again at 7am and not motivated to do much else, I grab my phone.

It’s been five minutes and I am disconnected, grouchy, and my mind is racing. I have been bombarded with message after message after message on how to be “instaperfect,” yet the only thing I can honestly think about is…
Who un-followed me????
