Today


"Today I begin the best week of my life. As I invite my Heart to guide me, I am willing to let go of bitterness, sadness, and any restrictions I secretly hold. I am willing to begin again. I pay attention to moments of grace, effortless, love, and beauty. This is all I focus on today. This is where my True Life is beginning."  Tama Kieves


Good morning, lovely ones,

I hope you are all waking to deep breaths, to slow, conscious looks around at all the beauty that surrounds--inside & outside.  Right now, I sit propped up in bed (the girls are still asleep!), the snoozing, purring, cute cat at my feet. It's raining a bit and the mixture of rain sounds and birdsong are soothing me all over.  

Feeling deeply grateful for a moment like this; for this new day, for a chance to begin again, for summertime and friends who understand, for beautiful, healthy little ones, fresh blueberries that the girls and I picked yesterday, fresh air and quiet and pretty visions of all that is to come.  

Last night I pulled one of my "Truth Cards," and this is what it said, There is time and space for everything I want to do.  This was the perfect card for me to pull, an affirmation that I need to continually repeat.  So often I feel a sense of urgency, like, if I can't do it all today, then it's just never going to happen.  It can be hard to wait for the things you want the most.  

But I know true joy never comes later. There is no later.  There is only this one breathing moment, it is in this moment that all joy/peace/love/compassion are found. I also know that this love that I find in this moment, is all that really matters and is far more important than anything I'll ever do.  

And the next step, it's always Love.

And since one of my little ones is now awake and wants breakfast and attention, I will turn off this computer.  I hope your day overflows with love, for all who/that surrounds--but mostly for your beautiful Self--for you, right now, just as you are.

  6. Every day I say thank you to Spirit for the chance to begin again. What a beautiful insight into your morning... you words are very evocative and I feel like I'm right there with you somehow. Blueberries, mmm :)

    The new day tomorrow brings my Birth-Day! Wow. My mother gave birth to me 28 years ago and I'm learning to find my way back to the original place of innocence, a step, a moment at a time.
