I banged my knee on the corner of the bed when I was making it. It bloody hurt, because I punctured the skin on the corner of the post. Within fifteen minutes, I banged my head on the corner of the kitchen cupboards. I never do that. I couldn't figure out what happened. The last straw was stubbing my toe on the step as I was going upstairs. It hurt, and I never stub my toe, either.
What is going on?? I kept asking myself what was happening and what I was supposed to learn. And then I got it! I was not being mindful. I was not paying attention to what I was doing. Instead, I was allowing my mind to wander, and to distract me from the task at hand. I am all attention, now.
