" Mindfulness  practice means that we commit fully in each moment to being present. There is no 'performance.' There is just this moment. We are not trying to improve or get anywhere else. We are not even running after special insights or visions. Nor are we forcing ourselves  to be non- judgmental , calm, or relaxed. And we are certainly not promoting self-consciousness or indulging in self-preoccupation. Rather, we are simply inviting   ourselves  to interface with this moment in full awareness, with the intention to embody as best we can an orientation of calmness, mindfulness, and equanimity right here and right now." 
~ Jon Kabat-Zinn, Wherever You Go There You Are

Here we are in September and in talking with people I have found there seems to be 2 main "labels" that people place on this time of year:

1. Fall is a slow march to the impending doom of winter. Oh, summer - please don't leave!

2. Fall is my favorite time of year - bring on the sweaters, football, and everything pumpkin!

While I'm sort of excited to have broader options in my daily wardrobe (anyone else excited about adding scarves back into your accessories!?), I am definitely in the "summer - please don't leave" camp. As fall rolls around once again, I find myself not present... I look to the past fondly (summer) and future anxiously (winter) but in doing so I miss out on what is (fall).

When I came across the Jon Kabat-Zinn quote included above earlier this week, the line, "with the intention to embody as best we can an orientation of calmness, mindfulness, and equanimity right here and right now," it reminded me to shift my perspective a bit. Having an intention to embody AS BEST I CAN a fuller awareness in each and every moment of these upcoming cooler and darker days.

What's your intention for fall?
