It’s okay to just BE

This time of the year often brings a busy-ness that can lead to crazy making. With “to-do lists” that never end, obligations and responsibilities that extend in way too many directions sometimes hang over us, choking us. We all seem to have overfilled schedules. It’s no wonder our sanity is pushed to its limits! Through all of it, our daily rounds do not go on “hold” so we can graciously tend to all the additional “shoulds” and just thoroughly soak in the pleasures of this time.
So what if, as the only ones truly responsible for the peace and happiness we seek within and without, WHAT IF we deliberately create space for just BEING? What if we devote ourselves with even more passion to the habit of BEING?
Each morning I spend the first hour of my day in silence, first in meditation and then with readings, followed by writing time. It feeds my soul at a level that sustains me and fills me with a powerful peace and joy. I occasionally have to skip my morning ritual due to circumstances, but I will attest, with pureness of heart, that every minute spent in silence and stillness is a wonderful investment in my well being.
This is our only life to live (at least for now) regardless of how crazy it feels at times. This is our unique, personal daily round and we get to create it any way we choose. The level of peace and contentment you desire, the vitality you dream of, can be yours with your choice to make each day count. Make the empowered choice to start your day with silence, presence, and peace. We create our reality, so let’s just go right ahead and create a phenomenal, joy-filled, sing-it-from-the-mountain-tops, hallelujah kind of day. EVERY day. Let’s celebrate all the presents the Presence bring.
