Where does your mind go when you are not fully present? Well, that’s the point of mindfulness: It wakes us up to the fact that we live in a constant stream of thoughts which shapes our mood.  Mindfulness isn’t about stopping your thoughts; it’s about cultivating a wise relationship with them. This begins with training your awareness to notice when it’s not in the present and returning to where your life is actually happening: this moment.

A reminder to be grateful

At Not I But We, we acknowledge that life is hard and unfair, and for some (like the woman who made your bracelet) it is so much harder than most. But, we also stubbornly point out that life is ridiculously beautiful at the same time. The practice of gratefulness is a powerful tool for training our awareness to acknowledge that even in the midst of pain there is still something to be grateful for.
