A Year of Mindfulness – 18 – Lucky Breaks

This week's task really resonated with me and whilst I didn't fulfil it to the best of my ability, it's something that I wanted to share anyway because it's such an important lesson to remember. Week 18 of the mindfulness challenge was the week of lucky breaks.

And really, it was a bit calmer and generally, not much happened. I'll get the serious stuff out the way first. Mum is improving… Continue reading The Corona Diaries Week 6: Little Things
