As we begin 2016, we often take a moment reflect on the past and think about the future. (Tis the season for resolutions.) But instead of planning for the future or replaying our past, what would happen if we spent 2016 being present. So much of our mental energy is spent worrying about what will come or rehearsing what has already been. Let's all take a moment to "hit the pause button" in life. To breathe. To be. To listen within. Let's enjoy 2016 for what it is and resolve to stop resolving.
It's a new year and a new day. A day for all of us to take a mindful moment to review and rekindle our excitement about our lives. Nicole and Aaron of Music Journey, LLC want to send love and light to everyone as this New Year begins. As we reflect on this New Year's Day, we are reminded of the importance of self-compassion, self-care, and self-forgiveness. In one of the mindfulness music therapy groups that Aaron runs, he works on helping people to develop ways to become mindful with poems, music, and meditation. On this New Year's Day, we hope you all create an opportunity to be mindful and appreciate the moments you live in.
