The Journey

What they Never Tell you about Goals…..

Goals are great and an important part of life.  I set big goals all the time but there is an important part of goal setting that not many people focus on.  I found this out the hard.

In 2016, my major goal for the year was to run a marathon.   It was my first ever marathon and I was in good shape at the time so I set my sights on completing the marathon in 4:00 hours.  I put the work in over the 20 weeks before Marathon day and was determined when I started that I would hit my goal.

However, I was so preoccupied with the end result, I missed out on something very important.

Stephen has been practicing Mindfulness since completing a MBSR course in 2013. Following a personal tragedy in 2014, Stephen gained an appreciation of just how short life can be.
What started as a way of sharing mindful quotes and articles that inspired Stephen, grew into the Our Mindful Moments Facebook page that exists today. It is his belief that gratitude for the little moments in life, as well as a realisation of how short life is, is what helps Stephen “Ride the waves of grief” as he puts it.
