Mindful Musings -- Treasure Hunting

Daily walks are treasure hunts for me. I walk the same route as I drive each day, yet I see so much more from my walking perspective than I do through the windshield. These are treasure hunts with a twist… I am not specifically hunting for a specific object, but for bits of beauty, treasures, that have gone unrecognized, unnoticed in the day to day of getting from point A to point B. Early spring is one of my favorite times to go treasure hunting, I am never disappointed and always in awe of the bits of beauty that become visible before my eyes.

Mindful Musings

As you may know during the month of January each year I host #haikuchalkenge (this year was #haikuchallenge19) where I write and post a haiku accompanied with an image each day and encourage others to participate with this mindful activity. While the haiku challenge lasts just one month, I encourage myself and you to find mindful moments frequently throughout the year and actually notice them while they are occurring…perhaps with a pause, perhaps by capturing with your senses or by describing with words or image. I look forward to sharing with you my mindful musings on my blog and I hope you will share yours.
