The season is changing. The air is cooler in the morning. The leaves are starting to change colors. The sun is rising a bit a later. The season is changing.
When the season changes in your life, what are the signs?
Most times, I feel the shift. My energy changes. Sometimes, I feel more energize. Other times, I feel my energy pulling in a certain direction. My focus shifts. My motivation gathers its belongings and dashes to a new path. The season – my season – is changing and I’m anticipating it.
Last week, I was unsuccessful at taking quiet moments to meditate. Even when I felt I needed it, I somehow seemed to busy to take 5 or 10 minutes to myself. This week I’m determined to make it happen.
Tell me how your efforts turned out last week.
Have you ever woke up and just been thankful? Today I am thankful for so many things. See below some of the things I am thankful for today:
Thankful to be breathing. Thankful to be in my right mind. Thankful for family. Thankful for supportive friends. Thankful for finances to pay bills, finances to enjoy life, and finances to contribute to various causes. Most of all I am thankful for the peace I am consistently creating in my world.
On another note, this school year, I am most thankful to see my students’ gains from the previous school year. (I’m a researcher and interventionist) To witness how much new information they retained from last year is mind-blowing. This is one way I invest in my future and I am thankful for the opportunity to invest this way.
What are you thankful for today?
It’s Monday. If you weren’t able to recharge over the weekend, take 5 minutes right now (well after reading this blog) – 10 minutes if you can spare it – to recharge yourself!
Sit in silence.
Think about what you’re feeling in this moment and then let those thoughts float wherever they may.
Pay attention to your breathing. Give your body permission to inhale and exhale allowing any tense feelings to escape.
Allow yourself to just be in the moment – whatever that looks like for you.
Today focus on renewing your mind and allow the renewing of your mind to be an intentional daily activity this week.
Next week, we can share outcomes.
A moment of silence to recognize those lives loss 17 years ago.
Have you ever took a step back and looked at the canvas(es) of your life?
Today take a step back and look inside your world. If your world was a museum, what would it reveal?
Do you still like what’s on your walls? Have you recently created and hung up new pieces that you haven’t taken time to acknowledge and appreciate?
Life is beautiful don’t miss the beauty rushing through it.
Tell me about your museum and stay tuned for details on mine.
