The Prelude Blog

The Intentions of this Blog

Before I begin to populate The Mindful Sight, I want the reader to understand where I am coming from, and where I am headed. If it were up to me, I would wish to go back in time, before my diagnosis, and tell my younger self to deactivate the autopilot setting and to open both my physical eyes as well as my mindโ€™s eye. I wish I began my Mindfulness practice about a decade ago. However, that is something that I have no control over, and I must play the hand that I have been dealt.

This blog will open with a few posts about the vital aspects of what I have learned since being diagnosed with brain cancer. They will contain a rollercoaster of emotions that will range from inspirational to ominous. However, the presentation of these emotions are necessary in giving the reader a true insight into what cancer has done to me, both positively and negatively.

Once I feel that the cancer theme of The Mindful Sight has been fully utilized, my goal is to present the practice of Mindfulness and how it has changed my entire life, and how it can unequivocally change yours. You do not need something as severe as a cancer diagnosis to reap the benefits of Mindfulness. I can only hope that my diagnosis can convince you of this idea.

I look forward to sharing my perspective of Mindfulness with the readers of this blog. I sincerely hope that you enjoy The Mindful Sight.

    Paul, I am so looking forward to your blog and your insight. I am learning to practice mindfulness myself, something that I’ve been encouraged to do before, during and after my surgery last year. I’m so glad to walk this journey with you, thank you and I love you.

    Always thinking of my self has been my priority even though I am married with two beautiful college students, I am hoping your words will bring to life what and who is important in my life. Stay strong for all of us.
