When I was in London, England this past summer, we rode the tube to get to different parts of the city. When you enter from the street level, you had to take an elevator down several stories, then stairs to the proper platform. It was quite easy to navigate (since all the signs were in English) and a great way to get to different parts of the city.
The first time I stepped from the platform onto the train, an announcement was made to “Mind the Gap.” The British accent made the phrase seem rather quaint, and I really didn’t think much about it. But after I heard that announcement for the nth time, I finally realized that it meant so much more than being careful stepping over the gap between the platform and the train.
“Mind the Gap” is a great way to remind yourself to pay attention to your thoughts, and redirect them inside that gap between one thought and the next.
The gap between your thoughts is where your power lies to change your life!
You see, I am a Mindfulness teacher, author and speaker. The thread that ties all of my work together is this: we are spiritual beings having a human experience. Mindfulness reminds us to stay connected to the present moment, the only place where our beingness exists. From the present moment, we move forward authentically, guided by our intuition instead of old, limiting stories that may not be true.
To celebrate our ability to choose this moment to be happy, I have created daily mindfulness moments, called “Mind the Gap.” Won’t you join me in celebrating mindfulness, one day and one moment at a time? Just click below 🙂
