This is an invitation to disconnect from all external distractions and reconnect with your most powerful source: YOU. As I said in last month’s blog, every month throughout 2020 I’m going to post a piece of writing without weaving it into a bigger theme or placing context around it. Read the selection and pay attention to what thought or feeling first comes to mind and then spend a few moments with that awareness (no excuses! A minute will suffice if that’s what’s available). Let whatever it is that wants to rise up, rise up – no judgements, no expectations. Feel free to write, draw, or share your experience in whatever way feels right for you…remember, though, the goal isn’t to do something this instant. Just notice and be curious (aka being mindful).
Month 5 of the 12 month invitation to insight:
“Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year. He is rich who owns the day, and no one owns the day who allows it to be invaded with fret and anxiety. Finish every day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities, no doubt crept in. Forget them as soon as you can, tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely, with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense. This new day is too dear, with its hopes and invitations, to waste a moment on the yesterdays.”
(Ralph Waldo Emerson)
