Mindful Message

Dear Readers,

I was forced to take some time off from posting on a regular basis. I appreciate your support and hope to get back on a regular schedule of posts. You can expect to read posts three times a week. I will share my ideas and insights about becoming more mindful. I hope you join me on my journey to a more still, purposeful and mindful place.

Peace and Stillness,

Melba Christie


I found myself looking at this bookend I was dusting off as I was reorganizing my library. I thought about all the tragedy recently. I was hoping not to let negative feelings take over but we have had our share of crazy unstillness lately. I think I just made up a word. I realized that I needed to ease up and also figure out on how to help others regain ease and peace.

I sometimes have to talk myself into staying focused and on track with my goals. I remind myself that only I can simplify my commitments so I am not so overwhelmed. I have to work on being mindful of the daily distractions.

I looked at this jester type figure and focused on finding something comical or funny to get myself relaxed.  I picked up some joke books and had some hearty laughs. Afterwards I was able to fight off  the distractions and stay focused and still.

What do you do to stay focused and mindful? I would love to hear from you.

  1. I find different things work on different days. Today it was just lying in bed watching the sky, then cooking, writing and finally enjoying some music and candles burning in the back ground. Tomorrow it will have to be something more work centred as most of the day won’t be my own but there are always opportunities for mindfulness and this post is a lovely reminder of that. I’ll look forward to reading more. P.S. I am toying with a schedule for my blog at the moment but find the idea a little scary and not so going-with-the-flow. Would love to know how you make it work for you if you have a moment.

    1. I always thought I had to be inspired or indeed had something meaningful to write about before I sat at my computer to post. I definitely want to share insights that help others too. I try to post at least twice a week. I will also reblog something I wrote awhile ago because it still in my opinion has some value. I find that more people read it and I actually get more likes. I don’t think there is a real formula except to write with purpose and to be sincere. This works for me. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. Much success and Peace to you.
