“There are just those special people that just come in and leave footprints forever, and she did that to everybody.” Said by; Blake Densmore I chose this quote to start this blog because it really caught my attention, and lately I have been trying to leave as many footprints behind as possible. This quote reminded me of a Mindfulness course I began about a year ago, where we were asked; “What will be said about you at your funeral?” Pretty good question to reflect upon, don’t you think?

So of course being the soccer lover that I am I couldn’t let this opportunity pass me by, especially since Mexico beat Germany this past Sunday 1-0, WOW!!! And to top it all off on father’s day, a super gift for all Mexican dads, including mine. What a sport! Soccer has played an important role in my life; thanks to soccer I met my husband. Also, my son Emilio is an amazing player, and of course his dream is to follow in Messi’s shoes one day. This blog is even more special than usual as I asked my students to participate in writing on the topic with me.

This has been my favorite topic of interest over the last couple of years! Have you ever heard about it? It’s a pretty interesting idea. Let’s start with this question; How often do you find yourself, I don’t know let’s say taking a shower and thinking about something like the meeting that’s coming up that day, what you are going to cook for dinner that night, what you said yesterday, and on and on we could go? Scientists have shown that we often spend more than 47% of our time not in the here and now. Pretty incredible isn’t it? In 2015 I attended an amazing conference in San Francisco, called Wisdom 2.0. Connecting technology and mindfulness, where I learned more about this way of life. My favorite definition on Mindfulness is; paying attention, on purpose, to the present moment, non-judgmentally with kindness, I came up with this definition thanks to Jon Kabat-Zinn the person who began this movement, as well as, more recently a talk on Ted Talks by Shauna Shapiro.
