Where do you stand...
Hello again. It's been a few weeks and we are continually grateful at the support the Love and Let Live campaign is getting. We are in awe of the fact that the love is growing and connecting to so many people! Can you feel it? We hope so! With all the crazy that is roaming around in the world, we encourage you to stay grounded and continue to pour love and hope into your day, your life, your work, your family, yourself, and to everyone you meet. Peace always begins within us.
I have been thinking a lot lately of where I stand. Not on issues or anything like that, but actually about the earth that I stand on and how I honor and give back. I think about how sometimes I take her for granted. I walk on her ground, breathe her air, drink her water and so many other things that I don't always notice. I have always felt grateful for this beautiful earth, but more recently I have been giving more gratitude to her. Being more in the moment and noticing the trees, the wind, the rocks, the ground. And when I do, I feel like I am honoring her more than ever. Other ways to honor where you stand is to connect not only with the earth, but with all her creatures on it...to open up and be in the present moment with the animals, insects, and the people. I challenge you to find ways to connect more with your surroundings each day when you wake up. Notice the changing leaves as mother earth prepares for winter, the way the wind blows, how the sun shines behind the clouds. Make this connection daily. Be grateful, and you will start to notice positive changes in your life. Quiet the noise and connect to all that is around you and you will hear a new beginning. Theres a quote that I love, I'm not sure who said it...but it goes like this....
Be awake to the songs of the singing birds,
the warmth of the sun,
and the small joys that have no words.
It can be that simple, all you have to do is listen and notice. Thanks again for showing up and for your continued support.
Until next time...happy connecting!
