I was farming on Facebook today: click, click, click, click...harvesting each little square of my farm when I had this thought: Oh my God, this is so mindless.
Mindlessness: a. Marked by a lack of mind or consciousness
This is opposite of the life I am seeking: A mindful life!!!
Mindful: (1) Bearing in mind: AWARE (2) Inclined to be aware
Aware: (1) archaic: Watchful, Wary (2) Having or showing realization, perception or knowledge
Can I live a mindful life whilst spending so much of my "free-time" doing utterly mindless stuff? Good question...
So, my challenge for this week is to be AWARE, to keep track of how much time I spend in mindlessness...Maybe I'll make this part of my Lenten observance...seeking out mindlessness in my life...What do you think?
