PONDER on THIS for Saturday, August 13th, 2011 by Donald Altman in ONE MINUTE MINDFULNESS

“The next minute is not what we think it will be – not even close. But it can be what we decide to focus on. If we constantly look for what’s missing from our lives – that big house, dream car, perfect relationship, ideal job – then the upcoming minute might be filled with regret, remorse, sadness, frustration, and hopelessness. If we consistently appreciate what is currently before us and available in our lives – the car that runs, the roof over our head, the job that provides resources, and the relationships we do have, most importantly with ourselves – then we spare ourselves disappointment.”

                                Donald Altman, in “One Minute Mindfulness”
