What do you lean on?
We are all doing so much, aren't we?
Life is filled to the brim with this and that.
I try to remain still even though there are 10 more things that need to be done. There is something so incredibly decadent about knowing things need my attention and, instead of rushing to get everything completed, sitting down and drinking a tea.
In this simple action I am taking a radical stand for what is truly important.
I am not a lazy person. I am not a super zen, soft woman either. I am fierce, intense, a full-of-fire woman. I love to rise early in the morning and my days are filled with much that I hold sacred—making meals, connection, and caring for a growing family whose individual and collective needs change day to day.
If I am not fully present, I might miss what needs my attention. I make it a priority to listen to my dreams, to the stress I hold in my body, and to my dear and trustworthy intuition.
I meditate daily so that I take the time to be in that space, in that inner knowing.
No other person can give me that. It lies within me, and it lies within you, too.
