Come in, enjoy the moment, take a breath of all that you love and hold true. Stand strong, feel free, dance, or maybe laugh really out loud.
Today is the day that is going to surprise you, that is going to take you to a new tomorrow, yes today, it is for you, how will you take it by the hand and live it well.
Embrace each crumb and sip.
Today, I am going to notice color, relate it to a word, let it show me something more than green, red, blue, yellow... today I am going to paint it deep within me like a rainbow of wonder and awe.
Red heart on fire strong and faithful.
Yellow golden halo above those I love and care for.
Green growth energy healing.
Absorb the flavors raspberry, chocolate, walnut... but also the flavors of life: rush, slowness, anger, peace, hope, anguish... feel them for what they are, and then let them go.
I need to ask: What is this feeling, thought, (or flavor) telling me? What do I need to do about it? Why is it here? Does it need to set up residence inside of me, or can I give it a place to be that doesn't leave me in an ackward place?
Stand up to the moment at hand.
I opened my bedroom window, I hear the children playing at school, happy giggly sounds, an ant crawls on the rose branch where dry rose petals tell me autumn is near, the church bells ring, French Husband is doing the dishes, a bird flys across the cloudless sky, a leave twirls on a spider's web, a door slams nearby...a whiff of garlic.
Take in the everyday, pronounce it worthy and true.
Random act of kindness,
Bold claims of love,
Tell the world hello,
Embrace the unembrace-able;
Whisper fear, Exclaim today you are amazing!
It is okay, to claim not to be busy.
It is okay to stay in bed.
It is okay to take a bath in the middle of the day.
It is okay not to finish the race.
It is okay to say no.
It is okay to feel that which is uncomfortable.
It is okay to change.
Water, air, and the whole nine million yard ahead.
Freely loving life, set it free.
I am on a roll, yes I am, this morning I woke up and realized it was a year ago I broke my wrist, had surgery, heard the doctors tell me it would take several months to be able to use my hand again, and felt incapable of the simplest things.. cutting my food, holding my camera, putting on my bra, driving, everything took longer to do... and I wasn't to happy about it.
But it pass.
A small burden.
My mother in law came to help me when my wrist was broken, and there was a major break through in our relationship. It made me wrist breaking a gift.
Ah the beauty of the silver lining.
Live it... the silver lining, the merry go round, the wonder, the doubt, the hope, the desire, today, this moment.
I ate more this week than I have in all the last five weeks put together and lost a pound.
God life is full of surprises, challenges and funny business.
I don't understand... it is as if my body said, "Oh diet...she is eating less... starvation happening? Beware! Hold on!" Then when I dined on the feast of happy birthday, and children back home, I lost weight. As if my body said, "Whew, starving wasn't the issue, letting it go."
Nice healthy body thank you for caring about me and haboring this soul of mine. For allowing my essences to live through you!

Today I will dance because even though it is the same ole, same ole it is darn good and I except that as an extraordinary gift.
How was you week?
