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 love of your life is having a rough day. Nothing he has wanted to do has gone right. So on the way home from work you stop to pick up a lifesize helium Minion balloon because you know it will make him smile.
Your friend’s children are filled with an incredible amount of excitement and energy because there are only a few days left of school. She, on the other hand, is riddled with guilt because they are driving her up a wall and she isn’t sure how she will make it through the summer.
Last night was a new moon. The beginning of a brand new chapter. During the phase of a new moon, you may find yourself detoxifying your life and releasing anything that is weighing you down. It is the perfect time for clearing out. Clearing out unhealthy habits or behaviors. Clearing out negative thoughts.
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.
