Noelle Oxenhandler asks what happens when an aging mind practices mindfulness of its own decline.
Natural disasters are tragic events that change peoples’ lives in so many ways and they are also reminders of the fragile nature of this life. They remind us that we are not immune to sickness and death. They humble us and that is a good thing because being humble helps us not waste the present moment. It also allows us chances to reconnect with humanity and remember that we are apart of a bigger picture than just our immediate sphere of influence.
