I was so distracted and stuck in the to-do list in my head that I kept putting off taking care of the lovely roses my husband and daughter had bought me for Mother's Day.
In fact, I was absently feeling a bit resentful of having yet another task to do.
Fortunately, I realized how foolish that thought was, and I was able to transform the care of my roses into a mindfulness exercise.
I enjoyed the snapping sound that the bottom of the stems made as I trimmed them carefully at an angle.
I watched the rose food dissolve into the water.
And I inhaled the lovely fragrance of the roses. Blissful.
This only took 5 minutes from my day, but was one of the more relaxing moments. But only because I reframed my perspective and turned my feelings of overwhelm into a more constructive attitude.
What do you have to do tomorrow that you can reframe as a privilege?
