I have been in the habit lately of taking a minute to lay in bed by myself. Jared stumbles down the stairs and puts the kettle on. The dogs are jumping around and often barking with excitement for the day, that we are awake to give them attention, and perhaps most importantly...breakfast!
Until the kettle whistles, beckoning me downstairs to fill the french presses with water and coffee, I have a few minutes to set my intention for the day. I often take the opportunity to do a light stretch and seated yoga poses. It is also a time for me to intentionally begin with gratitude.
How we live our days is really how we live our lives. The first moments of the morning can really get me in a good state of body, mind, and soul to carry me through the day.
There is no shortage of violence and chaos in the world. It is so easy to get sucked in and down by it. Some days are easier than others, but I remind myself that today is another day. I'm here! Living breathing matter on earth amidst a big beautiful universe. Today is another chance for me to bring something positive and beautiful, loving and kind into the world.
Guess what? It's another day for you too. I'm excited to connect with you and follow your journey as you bring your gifts into the world today. We need you. We need your art. We need your creativity. We need your smile, your laugh. We need you to show up just as you are and live your truth.
