Time to confess

This strategy of stepping back and observing our minds at work in the present moment is what unites Buddhist thought, mindfulness-based self-help, [Eckhart] Tolle’s philosophy, and [Accepteance and Commitment Therapy] interventions.*
Anna Katharina Schaffner

Reduce the friction associated with good behaviours. … Increase the friction associated with bad behaviours.**
James Clear

Sometimes I play with the word confession:
Confess what is good and wonderful about
yourself.

Try this at least once a day
Journaling being a great place to be both
playful and serious about confessing.

We become aware,
Though,
How other things impede our goodness and wonder,
And then the more traditional sense of confessing
becomes a blessing
for getting out
and sorting through the rough and not so splendid stuff.

Better out than in.

Whether to the universe, a journal or your god,
A practice of resetting and realigning at least once a day,
And perhaps several times,
Is a great way of getting back to living
life in all its fullness.
