My Mindfulness Guide
Digby is my mindfulness guide for living in the present moment. He doesn't ruminate about the past. He doesn't worry about the future. He does have occasional stress, like when we arrive at the vet's, or when he hears me put biscuits in his bowl and he’s locked himself in the bedroom (again), and he’s worried Barney will get there first. But once it’s over it doesn’t cause him any angst. And, his attention to the present moment isn't distracted by negative self-talk, such as, "I'm wasting my life sleeping all afternoon."
