Mindfulness Monday: Exercise #4

I can safely say that last week's exercise to refrain from using "filler' words like um, er, ah, y'know and eh was a bust. I have no idea if I used filler words or not. Reverting to my old, familiar mindless ways, my energy was totally focused on birthday-cake decorating for my twin step-son's 30th. More on that, in a later post.

New week, new exercise. Appreciate Your Hands. According to How to Train a Wild Elephant, "Several times a day, when your hands are busy, watch them as though they belong to a stranger. Also look at them when they are still."
As in the case of all of these exercises, there are deeper lessons that the mindful practice teaches us. I'm looking forward to what I learn from this one...
