Staying awake in our lives can be a challenging. What do you do to stay in the now? What are your touch stones?
As the universe offers opportunities, I stay open to all beauty, peace and joy. However, this is easier to write than to practice. As I think about this, the emotions and feelings bubble to the surface bringing challenges and opportunities to stay awake. Yesterday evening – I went for a walk after a little bit of a hard evening with the boys. I walked to the open space and found myself in a peaceful spot. Suddenly, I realized I had no idea how I got there. Of course, I used my legs and feet to get me there but I was not awake at all. I was cycling through all the conversations and emotions that were exchanged before I left. I stopped and touched the trunk of tree and found myself coming back to where I was – with my body, my mind and my spirit all combining. It made me ask, "what are my touch stones in life that help me remain awake." I search for these daily and continue to learn and grow with them in mind. It may be a sound, it may be a beautiful stone, it may be a friend's email that reminds me to stay in the now.
I accept me for who I am and I am done apologizing for it all. I am filled with excitement for what is next and my story matters.
Today’s Affirmation: "I am fully awake, the sun, the earth, the air provides me with the awareness throughout my day. I accept all that my day has to offer me with open arms and look forward to what I am being guided towards. I know it is something BIG."
