Is this mindfulness?
Being on top of a mountain is... being free. Looking out over the mountain tops is an extremely liberating feeling. One with nature. No problems. No worries. Just total peace in mind and soul. No thoughts. Still... Quiet... Completely mesmerized by natures beauty.
I am not a great skier. I always wanted to be one of those cool chicks swishing down the hill with speed. I am not a cool chick. I get down. But still, I enjoy it. I am so happy that this is a part of our life and that our children have the opportunity to do this every winter. They are great skiers already, like their Papa... but me... I do big snakes with Emmy and I meet up with others at the lift a while later. And every second on the hill I feel free. Just totally free from sorrows and just one with now. Present. Is this what they call mindfulness? Maybe my daughters will become cool chicks on the mountain and fulfill my dream... :D Run around in braided hair and rosy cheeks falling in love with cute ski bums with messy hair and baggy ski pants... How I wish. :D
PS It seems like my youngest is suffering from the "sticking-out-my-tongue" decease... Thank God I am not, it wouldn't look as cute would it?
