Good morning! Happy Monday, friends!
Everyday I feel like I’m given the opportunities to acknowledge all over again just how talented, wise, and kind hearted people in my life are. I get to marvel all the more how incredible my friends are and my family.... and I just fill up with joy and this feeling of immense gratitude for the lives I’ve been fortunate enough to intersect with.
We’re still able to do that. As untraditional as the methods may be, we still get to “intersect” lives in this part of our journey, in this shared experience we’re having.
I urge to take whatever moment you get today and think about the people in your life, maybe new ones since being home, or those you’ve interacted with via “live” features on social media. Think about the people that have positively impacted this time in your journey. Let the good feelings build. Let them carry you through today, or the week even.
Once before I commented that this was a time that would allow for greater sight than many of us have had or employed before. This time would be one where if we choose, we may be able to see more good, be moved by it, even called to action maybe.
I want to reemphasize that. Because not everyone will see, be, or do good. And often some of us with good intentions will let our anger or how upset we are with the choices of others, wat away at our own desire to see, be, or do good.
“I would have lost heart, unless I had believed
That I would see the goodness of the Lord
In the land of the living.”
It’s midweek & time for a weekly pause. Pause and consider how you might best use your heart to act & be receptive. How might you exercise compassion, understanding, kindness, and love towards yourself and others?
What can be done differently? What could be done continuously? or with a little more diligence?
Are we seeking help when we need it? Are we resting when we are tired? Are we taking care of ourselves so that we might be able to help others? Or are we taking care of others instead of ourselves? or vice versa?
Feeling good, healthy, seen, heard, loved ought to be priority AND perpetuated. The virtues & sweet things of life are meant to be had but not hoarded.
The heart is your spirit, mind, hands, words, walk. You heart is you. How will you use it? Be used by it?
Today I woke up at 5am so I could watch Sweeney Todd before the sun came up. (It just felt more fitting to watch in the dark ).. due to its length the sunrise did happen a ways through it which was still nice. Any who that was just something ridiculous yet enjoyable I did for myself today. I love this musical! And there’s something to starting your day belting out incredible compositions. *highly recommend.
It’s Thursday.... week’s almost out but today still counts! I hope you can enjoy it. I hope you are able to have one or several moments of just pure joy/laughter.... that the right person calls or the right task is started or completed... that something, anything happens that fills you up and makes you smile.
Have a good day, friends!
Good morning! Happy Friday!
What a gorgeous day! Here we are, friends...
What is there to reflect on? What is there acknowledge? What is there to express gratitude for? What is there to celebrate? What is there to evaluate? What is there to do better? What is there to continue?
There’s always plenty to be contemplated or discussed or acted upon but pick one or two things to think about today... one or two things to reflect on and process. Then follow up with a light activity or thought that gets you laughing or being silly. We need our serious/deep moments AND our trivial ones.
Whatever you have learned this week, whatever occupied your thoughts today... I hope today is good, that you enjoy it.
Be kind. Stay safe. Stay kind. Be safe.
