On the last day of the @truenatureeducation Everyday Mindfulness Challenge, I would like to share one of my favorite prayers by Marianne Williamson from her book Illuminata.  I believe it speaks very much to showing up fully present, and being aware that each day is a gift, and as we explored here together, that each actual omens is a precious gift.  It has been really great getting to know all of you and know that I’m now part of a great community of #mindfulness partners! Thank you so much for sharing with me and my fellow sponsors @whereismyguru @alanaroachyoga and @mindfulnessmatters! 

Enjoy your moments!!

Creative flow. Hit big time today, and I’ve been really enjoying it! It’s Day 13 of the @truenatureeducation Everyday Mindfulness Challenge, and again I am brought back to my studio, my place where I really get to my center. Maybe it’s the stones, maybe it’s the creative flow, could be the music in listening to today, whatever, doesn’t matter. Today time flew by, I was in the zone. This is presence. Focused on the task at hand, enjoying the process ! What about you? What puts you in the zone? Share with me, @whereismyguru @alanaroachyoga and @mindfulnessmatters and be part of the #EverydayMindfulness challenge!!

Day 11 of @truenatureeducation  Everyday Mindfulness Challenge. 
Groceries. This is my 3rd trip in two days to the store because it is my job to feed everyone. I’m what the yogis refer to as a “householder” (although traditionally male), someone who has the responsibility of a spouse and family, but who is also dedicated to a spiritual path and finding the true self. It’s a balancing act, and this weekend was definitely a challenge in balancing, and I often falter. I haven’t practiced yoga, or any formal exercise this weekend- I also didn’t post yesterday (day 10)  because I was hosting an oyster roast (outdoor pot luck shindig here in the South) and was very busy with prepping. I thought many times about posting, but my head wasn’t in the game, so I didn’t force it. I did what I had to do in the moment. And that invved preparing space for friends and family and feeding my tribe.

We’ve often mentioned during this challenge that mindfulness is about paying attention to what’s right in front of you, and sometimes everyday life’s demands doesn’t feel very “spiritual” but it’s really where the good stuff is. Your life is your spiritual work, so go with it, and give yourself some slack of sometimes you feel like your not doing enough on your path.  That’s what I did this weekend, and I’m glad for it. But I still despise grocery shopping.
Only a few  more days to post your #EverydayMindfulness moments with me and co sponsors @alanaroachyoga @mindfulnessmatters and @whereismyguru!

This is Shadow, our 12 year old puppy, and we are at the vet for the second time this week.  She is our most beloved and is having tough times with her coat and now with eating. So my plan was to write my Day 9 #EverydayMindfulness  post today about self care, after my acupuncture appointment his afternoon- but this girl needs me, so here we are writing from the vet. As part of the Everyday Mindfulness Challenge, @truenatureeducation reminded us that being mindful is also about reflecting, and I have been doing that a lot lately about our Shadow girl and all the years she sat faithfully by when we were our busiest and just waited for our attention. Never judging, complaining, only waiting and loving. I’ll be honest, we have left her alone a lot because of busy daily schedules, and still she just looks at us with more love than anybody else. We love her, and she really needs us now so here we are.  Send her your prayers!

Everyday Mindfulness challenge with @truenatureeducation Day 8:

I snapped this while waiting to pick up my boys at the HS…I just got my haircut yesterday, quite a difference, my hair has been past my shoulders for at least 10 years, so I thought everybody would notice.  I was so surprised to find only 3 people so far to notice…luckily one of them was my husband! My point? It has made me realize how much mental and emotional energy I have wasted worrying about what other people think of my outer appearance! Worrying- one of my worst habits, definitely not being present if you are worrying! So I take this opportunity to let go of some of that worry over how people see me, and give myself permission to be whoever I want to be and look however I want to look!

Day 7 of #EverydayMindfulness challenge with @truenatureeducation.  I’m borrowing this image taken by my sister. I was stunned by the beauty. Today is one of those messy days…I got word from a friend that the illness she has been fighting this past year is not gone, and in fact she has a much bigger fight ahead of her. It threw me back to the stories and memories in my head that have nothing to do with my friend, but I found myself dragging them from the past into this moment, and that wasn’t real. I had to clear my head go outside and go for a ride. What does this have to do with this picture? Well, I was going to share what I saw while on my bike ride, but then I came across this and was struck by the ethereal beauty of this shot- and made me see that this was also happening now. Even while it seems dark and scary here, at the same time, there is magnificence occurring as well. Thanks @bluecaribe for sharing yet another beautiful view, love you ❤️!
