A course in mindfulness has changed the way I think about flying. It hasn't made the airplane food any tastier (unfortunately) or the terminal chairs any comfier.
But, every time I travel above this carpet of clouds, I am reminded of something my brilliant teacher once said.
Think of happiness as a blue sky and thoughts as clouds. The blue sky is always there, but sometimes you have to travel through the clouds to find it. Clouds are but moments in time that pass.
It's a rainy day at home but, right now, here in the sky, the sun is shining. I know that even on the cloudiest day, there will always be a way back to the sunshine.
May you find you own piece of sunshine today.
