So today, I choose to create a life that feeds me.
How? First, by connecting to myself: through meditation.
Then, by asking myself what I need today: creativity and expansiveness.
Next I will implement simple, do-able actions that give me what I'm craving.
I will see my home as my art, and set the tone.
I will slow down and eat in a mindful way.
I will bring creativity into my relationships and I will be an artist in all that I do.
So today I will meditate. I will have tea. I will talk kindly to myself, especially about my body. I will move my body and I will check in and ask myself what I really feel I need. I will connect to others who are creating lives that are simply intentional. I will accept where I can shift and when I can't, I will take note and let it go.
My soul is right there ready for my attention. Quieting my mind and settling into the sweetness of the truth of my soul gives all that I do creativity and expansiveness. Choosing to see something as simple as making tea a sacred act gives me access to the divine right we each have in our homes right now—not when the children grow, or when I have more time for myself, but right here, right now.
Everything I do has the potential to be a sacred act of love and presence.
In giving myself this awareness I create the life I crave.
As I pour myself tea today, I will send a prayer to all the women and men who are making their homes a living, breathing space.
With attention and care, the simple becomes the majestic.
Ps...On November 11 I will be sharing my online course, 10 Days to a Simple & Sincere Meditation Practice. If you already have a meditation practice, these 10 days will offer fresh perspectives and invite you to deepen into your own. If you've never meditated before or no longer practice, these days will give you the encouragement and ease you need to begin or begin again.
