If you were to ask me anytime recently how I am, I might have replied that I am exhausted and overwhelmed…
working two businesses, parenting, maintaining land and animals, renovating… It’s been rare that I’ve made it to bed before midnight this last week.
… Yet I hesitate to commit myself to this statement: I am exhausted and overwhelmed…. Why?
Well, you know, it’s just not the whole truth. I’m also feeling so deeply pleased, grateful, rich and full… with my work, children, partner, creativity, spirituality, friends and finances – just to name a few!
When I bring my attention to the present moment. Like right now. Fully. Rivet my attention here… That which seemed overwhelming is no longer so.
In the here and now, a spaciousness expands around me and I am spontaneously, naturally aware of the privilege and grace that fills my life.
What about you?
No matter what you are wrestling with in your personal or professional or domestic life… No matter what overarching themes might be weighing you down… No matter what the facts of your day or week or month…
I’m curious: When you bring all your attention here and now, what happens?
