Monday Motivations for a Mindful March~*

Lately I've been complaining quite a bit-- about the weather, about feeling sick, about being tired.  I'm not a complainer usually, I promise.  I think its just that time of the semester & that time of year, when my brain gets fatigued & when winter wears thin.  
I guess I'm getting a bit of the blahs.
No fear.  New month, new theme for The Closet.  
I'm really digging this whole monthly theme thing, by the way.  It helps me focus, & I always need help focusing.  I am...aware of myself, if that makes sense.  

I need to be more conscious of things-- what I'm doing, and perhaps more importantly what I'm avoiding doing. My grad school mentor once told me that knowing what I don't know is just as important as knowing what I do know, & I think of that often. Realizing my weaknesses, being aware of the hundreds of little decisions I've made over the course of the day & why I've made them-- being mindful, being aware. 

Where do you go to find your zen?  How do you stay mindful & motivated?

I hope you'll enjoy taking a mindful journey with me this month-- here are some quotes to get it kicked off right~*


  1. Mindful is a great theme! I should use it, too. I could stand to be bit more mindful in my life, too :)

  2. Being mindful is a wonderful idea for a theme.
    We should all be mindful everyday to each other
    and to ourselves, it will be interesting to read
    more about this.
    Have a great day.

  3. Hmmm....I'll have to give some thought to being mindful in March. Not sure if that's cm something I do enough really.

    Just Pirouette and Carry On...

  4. I feel the same way...blah and brain-fatigued. I am counting on spring to make the difference. And I will try to be more mindful in March. Good suggestion! :) Jo

  5. Cool. I like your theme for the month...I'm looking forward to what you'll mindfully say next. (= I also like what your mentor taught you. It is so lovely to connect with someone who is comfortable with not knowing. Lynaea @
