I thought I would share a poem with you this morning. Click here to experience it set to beautiful music and images.
Did you wake up this morning and think -I have to get up? Now think how differently you would feel if you thought - I get to get up, how lucky I am to be waking up, to be healthy enough to be able to get out of bed and start a fresh new day.
Change a word, change a thought, change your life.
Challenges can help us to develop new coping skills, to gain wisdom and to acquire a new understanding and a deeper connection to others.
Get out of this world for a few minutes, focus on your breathing, focus on what you are hearing without judging it, release the past and the future and be right here in this moment. This practice will bring peace and perspective.
Even though you may be social distancing, it's important to look at who you are spending time talking with, what you are reading, what you are watching on television and what you are listening to. All of these can have a tremendous impact on your mood, emotions, thoughts and state of mind. Notice how you feel when you are engaging in one of these activities and ask yourself if it is helping you to be your best or if it is pulling you down.
Practice gratitude, look around in awe of nature and life, appreciate what you have, trust in the universe and know that you are eternal.
