As I’ve lived and grown, I’ve become more aware of the importance of keeping an eye on our inner lives. It is so easy to get caught up in survival. It is in our inner lives we find parts of ourselves that need our attention so that they may develop and grow. As we are confronted by difficult events in our lives, these parts are calling to us to look within so that we may attend to areas that are wounded and wish to grow and more fully integrate into who we are.
As you grow and evolve, you may find the need to step out of the noise and into the quiet. This is where we replenish and recharge. This is where we ponder and gain insights and new perspectives. Give yourself permission to nurture this part of yourself.
Life is a practice, similar to any other practice. It requires focusing on staying awake moment-to-moment. Shifting from the habitual and automatic to a more organic way of being is called for. It asks us to recognize that we can transform our lives into things of beauty if we allow ourselves to open to new positive ways of being.
Wishing all a beautiful and fruitful journey filled with magic and grace.
