connecting

one of my favorite things to do is kayak. i have a favorite spot that i like to go. i paddle out, enjoying all the water and trees surrounding me.

my mind wanders as i paddle. my thoughts focused and sporadic.

i paddle through the narrows and come into a small outlet that is surrounded by trees. i see green above the water, i see green below the water. the water is clear and smooth.

my mind quiets. i connect to my inner being.

i sit

i float

i think

i relax

i let go

i allow

i connect to me

i listen

i connect to all that is

i be

these moments are my time. my time to connect to myself. to be real with myself. to be aware of what’s most important to me. to be aware of my deepest dreams and desires.

it is these moments that i connect and become aware of what i need to let go, what i need to allow. who i’m being. who i want to be. what i’m doing. what i want to do. what i’m experiencing. what i want to experience. how i’m living. how i want to live. what i’m creating. what i want to create.

what do you do to create the space to connect to yourself? where is it that your mind is energized and serene? where is it that you have moments of awareness for your being? for your dreams and desires? where is it that you let to and allow?

enjoy your moments. connect to you. be.

live your truth!

 

are you being?

is it easy for you to be?

i’m defining be as being present in the moment, not worrying about the future and not analyzing the past. being present.

is it easy for you to be?

when is it that you are the most present, being fully present – for your self, for those that you are with, for what you are doing?

what distracts you from being present?

it is hard to be present, especially throughout the whole day.

what do you do to become present, to become aware?

i like to surround myself with nature, quiet my mind with meditation, journal, activities that connect myself to me.

i am distracted by what i want and what i’ve experienced. there is a time for reflection and there is a time for looking forward. those times are a time to be present for those activities.

to be present as much as possible i have routines and habits i’ve created. with an ever changing world (as it should be) i am continually changing and growing my routines and habits.

i haven’t been being like i want to be.

i haven’t been as present as i want to be. i did some reflecting and have chosen some things to focus on to be more present throughout my day.

  • meditating at noon for 5 minutes
  • visualizing what i want
  • getting outside as much as i can

what helps you to be?

what helps you to be present? what are you going to focus on to be more present today?

be!

live your truth!

gratitude in the gap

what are you feeling right now?

are you feeling lack and wanting or are you feeling love and gratitude?

lately i’ve been stuck in feeling lack and wanting. the lack and wanting is part of the gap

the gap of what i want and where i’m at currently

the gap is good, awareness is good

feeling lack and wanting is not good

feeling gratitude and wanting is good

it’s a subtle difference: lack and wanting versus gratitude and wanting. the difference is what you feel

gratitude and wanting is excitement and enthusiasm for what you want. an energy to live and experience and create all that you want

gratitude and wanting is awareness for growth, connecting and creating

what is your gap?

what do you want to create?

be grateful for the gap! be grateful for growth!

to live each day as if it’s my first and as if it’s my last. a reminder to me to be curious, to be present, and to create what i want.

stop your thoughts

what are your dominant thoughts throughout the day?

when your thoughts are negative – feeling the lack of what you want, wandering aimlessly about things that are not true and will not happen, angry or overwhelmed – what do you do to stop your thoughts?

do you think about what you do want?

do you think about what you can be grateful for in the now moment?

do you journal, go for a walk, meditate?

do you say out loud “stop!” to interrupt the thought and pick a new one?

when you realize that your thoughts are negative, choose one of the above to stop those thoughts and focus on something positive.

what will you practice this week?

live your truth!
