Why are you waiting? Waiting until all of the laundry is folded and out of the way? Waiting until all of your bills are paid? Until every little thing on your “to-do” list is scratched off so you can feel caught-up?
Putting off happiness, joy, a deep sense of satisfaction, until you feel “eligible” to be so free? This is not the way God intended and it’s not the way for you to live your life to its fullest.
If we wait until vacation to “let go and have fun,” to let down our hair, to soak up that sunset, well, we are surely then missing out on daily opportunities for joy and bliss. It’s a hectic time of year and we are running to catch up on our “daily to do’s” for sure. This is a gentle reminder to take a moment, here and there, to notice the beauty around you, to give yourself a break.
Your body, mind and soul will rise to the occasion of joy as soon as you give yourself permission to fully experience and savor the moment. No pressure, no need to mark your calendar, or to make a plan for fun. Just a simple acknowledgement to yourself to take notice of the things that stir you, to SEE the beauty around you in the here and now.
In all of the chaos that exists around us, creating a place inside of ourselves where we can experience pure joy and love is the best gift we can give ourselves, and to each other. Be the peace you wish to see in the world…one breath at a time!
Joining with you in silliness, laughter, awe of nature, love of loved ones, and the true warmth our friendship brings us…2017 here we come!
