After many days spent with attention to and intention for healing my physical body from a shoulder problem and an ankle and soft tissue foot problem, which some would say is aging, I am back! Happily so. One thing about all this is while some aspects were challenging — the pain in my shoulder — from over use — was the worst pain in my memory. Blogging, typing, emailing, posting all came to a halt. Life became simpler. So I filled my days with what I could do and was content to ‘not do’ some days.
For those of you that drive, drive, drive to do, to do and to do; it is important to find balance to all the do-ing. Schedule time in your planner for ‘you’ time and treat it as important as the most important thing you do. You will find an inner voice that will finally speak, which is different that your mind’s voice running amuck. It is a quiet voice, non judgmental and loving. May you find it, for when you do, you will find who you really are.
So my wish for you is time to stop do-ing and just be. You will hear birds singing, bees buzzing, the sound of the breeze moving what it touches if you are outside. Just Be. All we really have is the present moment. See it, feel it, let it go. Be in the moment. Feel more alive! Be alive in each moment. Be mindful.
