"When we are mindful, deeply in touch with the present moment, our understanding of what is going on deepens, and we begin to be filled with acceptance, joy, peace and love." — Thich Nhat Hanh

Bouncing off the coffee shop walls my thoughts fly around, like a silver ball finding its way in an old pin-ball machine. My personality lends me to the increasing ability to over-think. But thinking can only take me so far. It's taking the physical act of engaging my body and heart in the present moment. I once heard that we each are a "human(being)." Key word within a word, being. It is a part of us, how we are intended to live. The act of living consciously, presently, with actuality, and simplicity. Being able to be aware of the goodness that is surrounding me, even amidst this bustling coffee shop that plays its music too loud. When I stop, breath, and look around I can feel my heart filling up. There is peace when I discover the truth of my circumstances, of who I am, and where I am. Because I want to live a life that matters, cause it does.
