I’m writing this with an icepack on my busted knee. Yup, that’s me. Fresh from the hospital.
It’s no accident that I’m accident-prone. I’ve been in the ER more times than I’d like to admit, thankfully with only minor injuries. I’m just accident-prone.
Actually, that’s an excuse for not being mindful.
While some accidents haven’t been my fault per se (dog attack, bike crash, etc.), I wonder if they would have happened if I were being more mindful of my surroundings?
This is a painful lesson I’ve had to learn. It’s no accident that these accidents had to happen to teach me a little more about the power of mindfulness.
I don’t wish my clumsiness on anyone, but I do wish this to be a lesson in mindfulness that I can share. I look to your wisdom for guidance and inspiration.
