I just read this quote and thought it was perfect. Lately I’ve been giving much thought and energy to just that. It’s not that I didn’t care about it in the past but recently I have felt a big shift in my awareness of such things. Each new day brings so much beauty and opportunity to all of us and I want to grab it and breathe it and speak it and feel it with all of my heart. Of course each new day also brings with it all of the stuff we need to accomplish, jobs, household chores, errands….. My goal is to shorten that list and take the time to just be in the moment and settle into myself. That’s where truth is. This I know and I love that place! As far as creativity goes, which is very far I hope, it flows from an unencumbered soul. It has to be gently nurtured and never forced. This is a hard lesson for me at times. I’m working on it! Sometimes I try too hard and it NEVER works out well. So for this day I will be gentle with myself and everyone I meet along the way. I am light, happy and the kind of person I’d like to hang out with!
