Take a moment for you
Even one single moment will infuse you with love
Breathe in the fresh air
Soak in the warm sunshine
Put down your to do list
And set your worries aside
Think about what makes you happy
What lights you up
Smile a great big smile
Even if you do not feel like smiling, smile
Listen to the sounds around you
Do nothing else but sit within the moment
For this one moment there are no expectations
You have no place to be
And nothing to do
Just be right here
Your heart and mind need this space
Give them exactly what they desire
And what you deserve
Sit and observe
Do not judge what bubbles up
Just acknowledge it and let it go
Continue to smile
This is your moment
Be right here
Allow gratitude to swirl around you
Feel all the feels
Your moment is waiting
Go ahead and take it
The year was 2008. I was living on my own in an adorable studio apartment. This sacred space held my heart as I began an epic search to unearth who I was and what I stood for. Like so many times in my life, I felt lost in this great big world. The eternal question “why am I here and what is my purpose?” played on repeat in my head.
Since losing my mom four years ago Mother’s Day has become a reminder that time with our loved ones is finite. We never know when the day will come that we have to say your final goodbye to someone we adore. Either you will have to say goodbye to someone you love or they to you. It is inevitable.
On the first of January, I sat in my meditation corner and thought deeply about how I wanted to move through this year with intention. The end of 2018 felt like a whirlwind and I was ready to slow down. I was tired of rushing from one thing to the next.
I hear it all the time. People talking about how snail mail is a thing of the past. How they don’t send letters anymore. How they don’t even check their mail because they pay all of their bills online and don’t receive anything worth looking at in their mailbox.
