Mindful Living

Mindful Living on Milo’s Farm encompasses lots of woo, reflection, self awareness, gratitude, and living with purpose. Living mindfully is about five things: presence, awareness, appreciation, reflection, and action.

It is about taking moments throughout the day to be fully present with our environment and everything within it.

It is about being aware of our individual impact and acknowledging the ripples of each step we take.

It is about appreciating what is around us, including the wondrous and serendipitous moments that brought us into the world.

Mindfulness is about reflection. It’s about appreciating how the past informs the future. It’s thinking about what we hope to get from our brief lives on earth and what we hope to give back to the forces that brought us here.

Finally, it is about action: the steps we take to be present, to internalize our awareness, to voice our appreciation, and to embrace our reflections. Actions are the manifestations of our intentions. We cannot always choose what the world brings to us, but we can always choose how we act in response to it.
