today i woke up to my vibrating phone (that i’d left on a hardwood floor so it was quite the wake up) well before calls should be allowed. i was still in a deep slumber dreaming about college days and the challenges of dating. ugh. not the perfect start to my week.

i stumbled into the kitchen to feed my “starving” pug and make my green zen tea, then settled in front of my newly revived macbook air to handle an overdue email draft. i began to do my normal twitter checking while waiting for my email to load and i came across this tweet by karen maezen miller: “baby steps will get you anywhere if you don’t stop stepping.” http://bit.ly/bw6xgf. then i clicked on the link and found this great blog post.

i stopped in awe when i read the perfect mindfulness reminder:

“whatever you bring your attention to will flourish.”

this simple sentence struck me as the perfect reminder on how to start my week and, honestly, to live my life.

so i ask you dear readers, where is your attention right now on this beautiful monday morning?
