The present moment is filled with joy and happiness. If you are attentive, you will see it.
~ Thich Nhat Hanh
<<First Name>>, dancing with you has to be one of the best decisions I made this year. Like every other person, you had plans for the year 2020. You had it all figured out and boom! A legendary year for all and sundry. Take a closer look and you'd realize that the present moment is filled with joy and happiness. All you need do is to be attentive.
Having you in my space is a practical course on what it means to dance in the rain <<First Name>>. In my first semester under your tutelage as Professor, I learnt a fundamental lesson: you don't get the most out of life if you are waiting for the storm to pass.
You made me realize that my purpose on the dance floor is not to get to a certain place on the floor. It’s to enjoy each step along the way. Whether the music is fast - paced or not, the mandate is simple: rock the dance floor.
Dear Prof. <<First Name>>, never forget to enjoy the process. Take your attention off the world around you and bring your awareness inwards. Be mindful of each moment. Cherish every moment. Be mindful of sleeping. Cherish the naps.
Breathe, live and explore to the fullest!
You are all I've got!

If you want to relax yourself and you cannot afford to visit a spa, I have found a cheat code. I wouldn’t charge in $ or even £: I need you to pay attention.
Be mindful of everything you do: it relaxes you (mind – and body by extension), and puts you in a clear, decluttered mindset.
Being fully aware of each moment brings clarity and focus. As a matter of fact, mindfulness is one of the most productive activities you can engage in.
Be present in every moment throughout your day. Day or Night; it doesn’t matter. Whatsoever is worth doing, deserves your best. At that point in time, every other thing is secondary.
Ever heard the wise saying: put your money where your mind is? The reason is not farfetched. Mindfulness will save you money. It becomes your wallet’s gate keeper. Save for emergencies, you are at alert.
If you are planning to forget why you need to be mindful of all that you do, it is important that I remind you of the benefits so I can achieve my goals:
Here’s a question you should always ask yourself: what am I working on and why?
- you focus,
- relieve anxiety ahead of your day, and
- you connect with tasks and your environment.
Be mindful and intentional on what you are trying to accomplish. Every task you work on should align with your greater goal. If this is not the case, become more aware of the goal that you are working towards and what needs to be done to achieve it.
