what are you doing right now? are you aware of what’s around you? are you connected to what you are doing? are you aware of who’s around you? are you connected to anyone that may be around you? what do you want to be getting from this moment? are you fully present to it?
are you analyzing the past? are you worrying about the future? are you stressed or anxious? are you overwhelmed or scared? what do you want? who do you want to be? what do you want to do?
are you aware of what you want? when you are aware of what you want, you are more able to be present when you are aware of what you want the choices that you make are for what’s most important to you
what’s most important to you? are you choosing what’s most important to you? are you being who you want to be? are you doing what you want to do? are you experiencing what you want to experience?
choose what’s most important to you be present in the moment be grateful for your awareness be grateful for your choices awareness and choice allow for you to be present choose what you want and be grateful for the present
just moments ago i was frustrated, overwhelmed, feeling the stress that i put onto myself. i consistently plan too much in my days. and today is one of those days, i know this and i was coming “to terms” with what i won’t be getting to today in a not so graceful way.
enter my sweet kids, their energy and being in the moment…
now, i’m smiling and breathing peacefully. i’m going to go outside for a walk like i planned (and then un-planned). i will admit that it won’t be as long a walk as i want it to be though, still, i’m putting me first (this is for another time too).
be in the moment! choose what makes you happy and smile. choose what makes the rise of your shoulders release and feel the tension ease out.
nature and the outdoors are a natural experience of being in the present, of being at peace
nature revitalizes, energizes
nature frees and awakens
in nature we are in the moment
enjoy the warming sun, blue sky, gray sky, purple sky, green lushness, bird song, a breeze, a muted fog morning, glistening trees of ice cover, brilliant cloudy sky, full bright moon, a tumbling brook of water, crisp autumn air, warm rain drops, splashing through a puddle, rattling dancing leaves, smell the apple blossoms, feel the cool water of the lake on your toes, sit on a rock throne…
