In full consciousness, I do my utmost to remember to stay still and keep to myself quietly when an extreme emotion engulfs me, especially when that emotion falls under the lower part of the happiness bar.
I am learning to postpone making any major decision when the current level of my joy is significantly above average, and more so when it borders ecstasy.
I tell myself to say nothing until a situation returns to equilibrium from extreme left or right, high or low.
I bear in mind the need to accept that I cannot always achieve balance in my life, and times of imbalance are opportunities to learn to appreciate silence and solitude.
In my quest to be more mindful, to live my life consciously, deliberately and on purpose, I allow my restless spirit to explore. I am constantly on a quest. I ponder. I look for alternatives. I look within. I strive to do better, to be a better version of me. I ask questions. I look for answers, recommendations and advice.
I found this article on achieving full consciousness.
Personally, I wish no one a life of laziness, distractions and/or boredom. I want to be present in my life.
What about you? Are you fully awake or do you merely exist, if only temporarily?
