Shining Eyes

It’s MindFULL Monday. I love Mondays. I see them as new starts to new new weeks. However,  it has been a while since my last MindFULL Monday post. My get up and go seems to get up and go during the dark days of January. I tend to stick close to home, withdraw and spend time carting around my hotwater bottle. I know that I will be up and out again soon, but for now, I find contentment under my comforter with books, magazines and journal writing.

I am grateful for the work to come and this time to be.

Amongst reading and journaling, I have taken to a new favorite afternoon activity –watching TED talks on my iPAd. I know I have posted about TED before, but I love this site. And I LOVED this talk. When it was over, I looked in the mirror and saw that I had shining eyes. I hope you will gift yourself with 20 minutes to watch it. (you have to copy and paste this link into your browser to get it to work. If it doesn’t, then go to and type in Benjamin Zander Shining Eyes. It’s worth it!).

As I write this post, it just occurred to me that I could watch my TED talk AND walk on my treadmill. Hmmm, am I ready to fling forth the comforter and get up and go?

What do you MindFULLY do to create shining eyes? Let us know!
